The author examines the need for plants by a variety of organisms. She describes the parts of plants and the importance of a seed. Then she turns to the propagation and growth requirements for a seed. Instructions on how to grow a bean plant encourage readers to try a science experiment. A glossary and reading references to resources round out this excellent introduction to botany for young readers.
