Common Core Guide      Kids’ Activity Guide      

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2–Buddy Bear gets a package from Grandpa that contains five bags of different activities with seeds. From them, he learns how seeds grow, plants some, glues down and labels some others in a collection, decorates a picture frame with beans, and feeds the birds. His collection grows through the week as he saves seeds from various foods that he eats. The artwork consists of cut-paper collages with shadowing and life-sized photos of real seeds that look as though they can be picked right off the pages. The story is entertaining and educational. The theme and pictures will appeal to children, although the text is a little lengthy for beginning readers. Pair this with Ruth Krauss's Carrot Seed (HarperCollins, 1945) and Eric Carle's The Tiny Seed (S & S, 1991). An excellent pick for information and enjoyment.–Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX

More About the Author

I love being out in Nature in all seasons - hiking, camping, star gazing, playing in the snow, gardening, beach combing - looking... listening...touching... being filled with WONDER. Nature is where many of the ideas for books come from. I love doing research and having those - WOW! I didn't know that - moments. I also paint seascapes... and love going to art museums. Guess which of my books that inspired! I write and illustrate books about what I love to do and what I care about. I love sharing with children and adults, my writing process, how I create my artwork and sharing what I have learned about visual literacy. Happy me, lucky me, being a children's book author and illustrator.

I am using this books as a basis for a science literture kit that will talk about the growth of seeds. I found the book to very engaging and colorful. The pictures help to show kids the seeds with great clarity. The wording is simple yet still a little challenging for a K-3 grades. I really enjoy this book as a teacher and I feel that it is a delightful addition to any library.

As we read this book and learned about seeds, both my kids and I were inspired to do some of the inexpensive but fun learning activities in the book! (Gramps sends the little boy a package with five different seed activities... growing grass in a clever pot, making a seed collection, an inexpensive bird feeder... and I can't remember the other two!) I am going to do this for my nephews as soon as they're a bit older. (maybe 4 year olds on up... to 10?)

I processed this order quickly because I thought it was about gardening. My daughter likes gardening and books about gardening. We have many of those. She has her own little bed in the backyard and is patiently waiting for spring.

"Seeds! Seeds! Seeds!" is about a boy bear who receives seeds from his grandfather in the mail. So he starts...a seed collection? Alright, it has its upsides. My children have learned to identify which seeds are which by the end of the first reading. Every few pages we see the bear's seed collection grow by just one seed. So I end up reading the same ones over and over. I thought they would find it boring, but no, they actually like it.

And that's all that matters in this house. Or at least it feels like it.

It was March and there wasn't much snow left for Buddy Bear to make a snowman. There was a bit here and there and just enough to fill his little red dump truck. Jim the mailman had a very special package for Buddy from Gramps. Mama watched as he lined up five colorful bags "tagged and tied with blue string." It would be a fun time because he could open one a day. Gramps had a special tag on each bag that told him what to do. Buddy Bear decided to open the purple one first. "Different and the same, / different and the same, / count them, sort them, / Glue them by their name."

Buddy Bear found markers, glue, and a tiny white bag that made a "shhhh-shhhh-shhhh" sound when he shook it. There was an assortment of seeds and Buddy Bear and Mama began to talk about them. They would be the start of his collection and when he had apple slices for his snack, he added the seeds to the corn, pea, radish, and pumpkin seeds. Each day Buddy Bear learned more about seeds each time he opened a bag. One the last day Gramps' note said, "Here are some things you can sow. / Water them, watch them sprout and grow. / Though it takes a little while, / Surely this will make you smile." Buddy Bear planted the seeds and waited and waited. Just what could those little seeds grow?

This is an excellent primer on seeds and germination for young students. Each bag that Gramps sends has a marvelous rhyming message on a tag that is the impetus for a lesson that Buddy Bear and his Mama can work through. For example, in one of the bags there are six cards that show how a seed grows. Mama tells him that "Inside each seed is the beginning of a tiny plant called the embryonic plant." The artwork consists of very appealing cut paper collage work and photographs of Buddy Bear's growing seed collection. This would be an excellent addition to a homeschool or classroom library when learning about plant science.

So, I have to admit. I'm not eco mom. I buy my fruits and veggies from the grocery store and I tend to think that gardening is a lot of work. I have a brown thumb - my plants die terrible deaths, withering into nothing.

However, I also want my daughter to know about the natural world. I want her to understand where our food comes from and to respect the earth. So even though I didn't really think this book would be too exciting, I decided to give it a try.

I was dead wrong!

This is a truly wonderful little book. The illustrations are just adorable. Buddy Bear and his mom are so cute. My daughter loved learning about the different types of seeds and learning how plants grow. She was practicing the words germinating and embryonic all night after reading this. By the end of the book, my daughter could recognize each seed in the story. She especially loved how, each day, Buddy and his Mom would eat something with seeds. She excitedly starting listing all the things she knew that had seeds in them.

I have only one complaint - now my daughter wants to go outside and grow things! Hopefully, my thumb has gotten a bit greener with time.

"Seeds! Seeds! Seeds!" is truly a story about seeds. It deals a little with germination but for the most part it talks about certain plants and what their seeds are like. I would have liked to have seen something grown besides grass; perhaps a radish that takes less than a month to grow. It would have been an even better lesson about seeds to have actually grown and then eaten the radish. This is true especially right now with all of the interest in raised bed vegetable gardening in back and front yards. Otherwise, it was a good book for 1-3 graders to learn that some foods have seeds and how they are planted and germinate. The illustrations were interesting - a type of cut out paper style that was effective being more simple than a fully drawn and illustrated picture might have been.
