Summary

Summary

Buddy gets five colorful bags in the mail from his grandfather, who writes:

Dear Buddy,
Have , five days of fun!
Love, Gramps
P.S. It's almost spring!

Buddy finds a surprise in each bag, and with each surprise he discovers something wonderful about seeds. In one bag, for example, there are different kinds of seeds which Buddy pastes onto colored paper and which are reproduced photographically in the book for accurate identification. In another bag, there are cards that show how seeds grow. As Buddy sorts, collects, eats, and creates with seeds, he learns plenty about growth and germination, making this introduction both entertaining and educational.

Booklist Review

K-Gr. 3. Buddy Bear's grandfather sends him five colorful bags, each with different contents and activities. The first holds glue, markers, paper, and a small sack of seeds for Buddy to sort and glue onto paper, making a seed collection. The second includes six cards showing a germinating seed. As Buddy puts them in order, Mama explains the growth process, using simple terms as well as a few longer ones, such as embryonic. The other bags contain a bird feeder, a frame to decorate with seeds, and a planter complete with dirt, seeds, and decorations. Most of the well-composed illustrations are cut-paper collages, but a page with photographs (Buddy's Seed Collection ) appears at intervals, each time displaying a larger collection of actual seeds such as corn, radish, pumpkin, apple, pear, sunflower, and strawberry. Though the fictional narrative will place this volume in library picture-book collections, it offers a good deal of information. Clearly written and brightly illustrated, this will be an appealing addition to classroom units on seeds and germination. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2004 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Buddy Bear gets a package from Grandpa that contains five bags of different activities with seeds. From them, he learns how seeds grow, plants some, glues down and labels some others in a collection, decorates a picture frame with beans, and feeds the birds. His collection grows through the week as he saves seeds from various foods that he eats. The artwork consists of cut-paper collages with shadowing and life-sized photos of real seeds that look as though they can be picked right off the pages. The story is entertaining and educational. The theme and pictures will appeal to children, although the text is a little lengthy for beginning readers. Pair this with Ruth Krauss's Carrot Seed (HarperCollins, 1945) and Eric Carle's The Tiny Seed (S & S, 1991). An excellent pick for information and enjoyment.-Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
