After running out of renewals at our local library, I had to buy this book for my son, then 5. Now he's 7 and he still enjoys this book and reads it to his 5-yr old sister.

This is a great introduction to the science of plants, and I highly recommend it for other homeschoolers, especially with kids in pre-K or Kindergarten. It contains complex concepts in easy-to-understand bites of information, and the pictures are a mix of real photographs and high quality drawings.

All of the sections are good, but there are a few that have been read over and over in this house. They include:
Seeds to Seedlings
Buds to Flowers
Pollen and Nectar
Spreading seeds
Rainforest flowers
Killer Plants

The Usborne Beginners series is a favorite in this house, but How Flowers Grow is the kids' favorite out of all of them. I'm glad I bought it.

This 32 page book is a great book to teach young children the basics of flowers and plants. It begins talking about seeds and follows the general life cycle of plants. This book discusses how plants make food, how flowers bloom, how pollination occurs and leads to making seeds, and the different ways those seeds get spread. It also talks about different places plants grow (desert, water, and rain forest) and even "killer" plants. It has beautiful illustrations and pictures and includes a glossary and an index.

My children are SO excited about this book!

A wonderful book young children. The book explains the basics of flowers & how they grow, as well as containing unique interesting facts about some flowers. The pictures are brilliantly colored & full-paged, perfect for holding the attention of the intended age group. There is a bit of humor thrown in as well
