About the Author:

Pam Paparone has both written and illustrated books for children. Kirkus Reviews praised the “bright, elegant acrylics” she created for D. Anne Love’s "Of Numbers and Stars: The Story of Hypatia". She lives in Pennsylvania.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3–4—Macken's crisp text reveals burdocks sticking to a kid's socks and to a rabbit's fur, touch-me-not seeds exploding from their pods, and acorns being interred energetically by provident squirrels. A final segment explores several kinds of seed "containers" (pods, fruit, nutshells) and the varying shapes of a number of seeds (peach pits, corn kernels, peas), and explains the stages of growth from seed to flowering plant. All the while, in careful step, Paparone's bright, realistic acrylics present clear pictures of the featured seeds in their natural dispersals, from tumbleweeds rolling across a Western landscape to coconuts dropping into a tropical sea. Many of the double-page illustrations contain a circular "bubble" with close-ups of leaves, flowers, pods, etc. Team this inviting introduction with Ken Robbins's elegant Seeds (S & S, 2005) and/or Helene J. Jordan's simple How a Seed Grows (HarperTrophy, 1992), or perhaps Sam Godwin's even simpler A Seed in Need (Picture Window, 2004) for a seed-full good time.—Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
