Volume 21 Number 2
A sweet simple pattern book about a young girl who plants a sunflower and anxiously watches it grow. As she waits, so does a ladybug, who munches on a leaf, a bee, who takes some nectar from the flower, and a little squirrel that climbs "up the stem to steal a black-striped seed or two." Through the seasons, the girl is pictured delivering her pumpkin to the compost on a frosty fall day and building a snowman, always in view of the sunflower. Children will enjoy spotting the girl's cat in the bright full-page water-colours.
This author's first publication is a good introduction to inter-dependence in nature and seasonal change. It will prove useful to parents and teachers of young children attempting to demonstrate these basic scientific principles.
