What's This? A Great Book for Spring!

What's This? A Seed's Story - Paperback
Ages 3 - 7

What's This? A Seed's Story is a fantastic book to teach your young child about the growth cycle of a plant.  The cute drawings accentuate the plot.  When I read it to my little girl, she immediately wanted to go outside to plant seeds.  While this book is great all year long, spring is the perfect time to introduce this story to your little one.
