This is an informative book about edible plants and how they grow told at a very basic level It was detailed just enough to provide room for discussion and exploration on the subject Really? You mean there are tiny bacteria in a handful of soil than there are people on the earth? Wow Cool A thousand will fit on this picture of a head of a pin? Cool The author did a great job at keeping the text engaging while being informative Excellent pictures Young readers will find this close up look at the key ingredients for growing food very engaging Beautiful full page photos worthy of discussion include children holding seeds and seedlings and handfuls of soil and earthworms The text is accessible and interesting creating vivid mental images of the role sun water and air in a plant’s cycle of growth Of particular interest are the millions of tiny even microscopic organisms – amoebas and mites to name a few – that are essential to healthy soil In one handful of soil there are of these creatures than all of the human beings on Earth A great introduction to many science units this book could easily be read aloud and then placed in the hands of young readers for perusing or rereadingReview I wrote for IRA Reading Today May 2011 This book is particularly important for students today Children today and even many adults seem to be out of touch with where their food comes from I knew a 6th grader who found it appalling that the potato chips she was eating came from the ground This book traces the origins of our food back to seeds and gives fascinating facts about plants soil and where our food comes from Special attention should be given to the book's dense vocabulary content I love this book The photography is beautiful and enhances the simplistic text describing how earth turns a seed into food for humans This would be a great title for sharing with a group of children who are learning about the food cycle or photosynthesis This picture book offers a nice introduction to the life cycle of plants – what they reuire to grow water sunlight soil and carbon dioxide what foods they produce what we’re eating when we eat certain plants and how other creatures use them to produce things that we eat or drink Curious kids will want to learn about plants their seeds and the food we eat Audience The audience for this book is primary elementary school Because of the amazing real life pictures and detailed information I feel it would best fit 1st and 2nd gradersAppeal I think this book would appeal to 1st and 2nd graders Although some pages contain a great deal of information there are also plenty of pictures to help illustrate the meaning of the words I feel that 1st and 2nd graders will be excited to learn how fruits and vegetables grow which is the basis of the book Application I would use this book in a science lesson to help demonstrate how plants grow The book could be a great resource to help entice children to grow fruits and vegetables at home I would also use this book to help promote healthy eating With the growing number of obese children I feel it is important for children to learn where there food is coming from as well as how to grow healthy foods Peterson C 2010 Seed soil sun earth's recipe for food Honesdale Boyds Mills Press Inc Seed Soil Sun Earth's Recipe for Food by Cris Peterson is in the genre of nonfiction and has an award of America Farm Bureau and the age group would be four to seven years old Seed Soil Sun was about how everything we grow and eat all starts out from a tiny seed The reason I rated the book the way I did was because I felt it was a very interesting book to read and to see the different things grow from just a seed There were really no characters presented in the book but I would then say the things begin grown could be a character The illustrations in the book looked so real Each different illustration inside the book had looked exactly like the real object in person The colors in the book were very were very colorful In the book when it had showed the different fruits and vegetables; such as corn it had been yellow like it would be outside of the book I would say that this book would be appealing to young readers because they would want to know how anything grows so why not start with how different fruits and vegetables grow April 21 2016 The SEED SOIL SUN is great book for children in science If children read this book they would learn many things through this book Plants have the life cycle of a seed which are few seeds a little soil a ray of sunshine a splash of rain a breath of air in life cycle The beginning of a new plant is curled up inside each seed Soil is another ingredient needed to make food The way plants turn sunlight water and carbon dioxide into sugar is called photosynthesis It helps children understand plant life cycle through this book Extension Teacher make a small green house for green bean and sunflower Teacher take a photo during one month Therefore children can see real part of plants which are root stem leaf flower through the green house Also children can see process of plant through pictures Children make their own charts of the life cycle of a seed; seed soil sun rain become a flower Could be used K 3 Beautiful I really liked this book It gives a wonderful interpretation of how things grow from seeds and give life to our planet This would pair nicely with the title Living sunlight how plants bring the earth to lifeLiving Sunlight How Plants Bring The Earth To Life Seed Soil Sun is on the nominee list for the 2012 13 South Carolina Picture Book Award It is a good nonfiction book that teaches young readers about the processes plants go through to make food Some words like photosynthesis may be difficult for young readers but if this book is used as part of a larger lesson on plants food and how things grow students will have no problems understanding the bigger wordsThe photos that illustrate each concept are engaging and my students will have no problem relating to them My school is in a rural area and many of my students live on farms One of our school's sponsors is the dairy a couple of miles down the road
