What happens when you plant just one little bean? A fundamental childhood experiment charmingly unfolds in this first science book about planting and observation.

A perfect balance of simple narration and cheerful, thoughtful three-dimensional paper sculptures just right for the very young, One Bean carefully and joyfully takes the young observer step-by-step through a plant's growth cycle, from planting the bean in a paper cup to the tasty results.

Created with respect to the developmental needs of the youngest learner, here's a concept book that tips its hat to children's never-ending curiosity about the world around them.
