    This book would be good to use for a unit regarding the plant cycle and how they grow. As well as understanding the variety of plants and the variety of conditions that are needed to grow. This book also gives good clear information. This would also be a good interactive look at the anatomy of a plant, and how they spread their seed and grow. This book would be good to help look at different processes that happen in nature like photosynthesis for example.

    The illustrations in this book are amazing! I think this book does an excellent job of presenting an informational book in a way that draws students in. Some key vocabulary mentioned in the book include photosynthesis, shoot, germinate, and dormant. This book would be a great support for teaching on the lifecycles of plants which could be paired with the CC #4 system and system models.

    This book is all about seeds and how important they are for life on esrth. The book starts by going over all the different things seeds are: sleepy, secretive, fruitful etc.. In doing this, it intices the reader because of course seeds don't really sleep, so it is intriguing to the reader to see what the seed actually does. It then goes over how a seed grows and all the things that it need, and then it's journey to becoming a plant.

    This is a great informational book all about seeds and the process of moving from seed to plant. Each page has a different adjective of what a seed is. It then goes into more depth talking about why a seed is "sleepy", "adventurous" etc. The illustrations are great and the book names many different types of seeds and plants. It would be a great book before beginning a unit on plants.

    This is a book all about seeds. It describes the live cycle a seed makes and all the different characteristics of a seed. This book is an informational book. It has little descriptions such as, "Seeds come in many sizes." The whole book gives you information on seeds.

    Beautiful illustrations and elegant sentences introduce children to the life and variety of seeds. This non-fiction book is a great option for lessons on plants, growing, farms, and more.

    I would use this book for a word study to go over all of the different words that were used and weather they were noun, verbs, adjectives, etc.

    Dianna Hutts Aston and Silvia Long do it again. Together they create a vibrant and interesting book about something as small and simple as seeds. The pictures are colorful and realistic to portray all the seeds and flowers true look. Each page is full of visual and textural information for a reader to take in. Each page has a font in larger heading with smaller text full of more complex, deeper information. I love love love these books and think they are a great interdisciplinary to science classes. Visuals could be brought in to the class to compare the pictures in the books to the real things. Students would be able to see, touch, and smell what seeds really look like. The classroom could make their own small garden or just singular flowers in pots. Students would learn to care and nurture the seeds to watch them grow into flowers. It would be a fun experiment to watch it happen before their own eyes.

    I love books with science and knowledge, I think they are important in any library and for every age. I didn't like science in school, so I'm trying to educate myself in that department starting from scratch, and the illustrations are lovely.

    Diana Jutts Aston and Sylvia Long - who also collaborated on An Egg Is Quiet - offer a pean to the seed in this lovely picture-book, which explores some of the many fascinating qualities of these plants-to-be. In the beginning, a seed is sleepy (and secretive), lying untouched and still, but soon it is fruitful and adventurous - spreading out and growing. Each two-page spread pairs a general (and rather poetic) statement about seeds, with some specific scientific information. "A Seed Is Naked," for instance, is followed by a brief two-sentence discussion of gymnosperms - seeds that are not "clothed" in fruit.I really liked this dual format, and think it will draw young readers in, sparking their interest and then building upon it. The ink and watercolor artwork is simply superb, with beautiful colors, appealing page layout, and botanical portraits that capture the delicate charm of dandelion seeds and the towering strength of the redwoods. A Seed Is Sleepy presents its information in an innovative way, making it one of a number of recent picture-book (Jason Chin's Redwoods also springs to mind, in this regard) I would recommend, to get reluctant or indifferent young students interested in botany. Highly recommended!

    A Seed Is Sleepy is a beautifully illustrated book...some of the illustrations look like they belong in a calendar or hallmark card. Though a picture book, the size of the text is quite small and because some of the text is written in cursive, it seems like a great book to read with or to a child to share the interest and passion for seeds, flowers and gardeningPerfect for read-aloud

    The slightly simplified technical drawing in this book are lovely, and give it a comforting heirloom feeling. While the drawing are labeled and precise, the writing tries to engage many dimensions of the reader's attention. A poetical tone is achieved in the larger, script text. Smaller text with block letters are used to express information. This information is still mostly presented conversationally and in an engaging format. However, the scientific facts, while pertinent, disrupt the flow of the book. The calming images seem at odds with the meandering writing and random placement of text, making ones eyes dart around to find information.

    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.

    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.

    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.
