A perfect companion to NorthWord's WHAT DO ROOTS DO?, this spirited text enumerates in riddle-form the many ways different kinds of seeds travel, whether by helicopter or rolling in the wind as a tumbleweed. Fun activities are included at the end to help readers discover the world of seeds up close. Gorgeous illustrations of seeds and plants and children enjoying them leap from the pages.

About the Author:

Heidi Roemer has long been a lover of "sound dominate" poetry and is especially intrigued by shape poems. Her poetry has been published in anthologies, educational journals, and numerous children's magazines. Ms. Roemer conducts poetry workshops for adults and children. She lives in Orland Park, Illinois, with her husband and two sons.

From Booklist:

Urban kids may not understand the relationship between plants and trees and the seeds from which they spring. This picture book presents that botanical process through a rhyming, riddle-style text and crisp, colorful paintings. The text is catchy ("Whirling and twirling, they whif-whuffle down. / These angel-winged seeds will / soon sprout from the ground."), but children probably won't be able to guess what seeds are being discussed. Fortunately, they don't have to wait long to find the answer; it appears on the facing page or the following pages, along with a picture featuring the full-grown plant or tree. The accompanying text, however, is a bit confusing. It reads, "What kind of seed is this?" The answer may be "a red and silver maple tree seed" or "a Russian thistle seed" but the picture doesn't always show the seed. Still, this inviting book will have lots of use in the classroom. Several simple activities are appended. Ilene Cooper
