From flower to fruit to seed, this beautifully illustrated, expanding picture book introduces the cycle of growth in the plant world. Each page begins with the description of a different flower, briefly describing some of its changes. Unfold the page and the fruit is revealed. Featured are how peas, raspberries, corn, peaches, peanuts, and pumpkins grow, "where once a flower bloomed". Included at the end are a index and directions for growing each of the featured vegetables and fruits. For deeper explanation of the process of pollination, you will need to follow the internet extensions below.
