“From the giant gum tree
to this very small weed,
every flowering plant
started out as a seed.”
And so Dr. Seuss’ famous Cat in the Hat introduces young readers to the fascinating world of seeds and flowering plants.
This title and others form part of a series of books that takes an off-beat look at nature and natural sciences through a fun combination of Seussian rhymes and zany illustrations. Aimed at early readers – from four to seven year olds – the books are designed to bridge the gap between concept books written for preschoolers and more formal non fiction titles that require fluent reading skills. By presenting the facts in a lively and rhythmic manner, they provide the critical foundation upon which complex facts and ideas can eventually be built.
