This is a beautiful book with detailed illustrations of seeds and their flowers. Very detailed and informative, yet suitable for a very young audience.

A Seed is Sleepy is a colorful book that informs the reader about seeds and how they become plants. The seeds travel by the wind and other ways to find soil to land in and make its home. The seeds grow up to be plants and the student's can see this in the book.

Science lesson: good way to illustrate the importance of seeds. Would ask kids to draw and label the varies parts of a seed-bean seed- and this book illustrates the life cycles of trees and the way seeds spread.

The first thing that strikes you when you pick up this book is its simplicity and beauty. Though aimed at younger children, this book has many different species of plants illustrated along with very specific scientific information about seeds, and almost lyric cursive script. Younger children will enjoy this introduction into seeds. It tells a narrative of the seed's life cycle with flowing language.This book can be used in the classroom with examples of different types of seeds, and in conjunction with students planting their own seeds. The sheer volume of information and different seed types is sure to fascinate interested young learners.
