Review:

"Readers get a virtual bug's-eye view of the natural world in these beautifully photographed, succinctly written introductions. Both titles are well organized, with terms defined as they appear. However, it is the photography that is the highlight here. Different-sized, sharply focused pictures complement the text on almost every page; many are remarkably detailed, extreme close-ups of flower or insect anatomy... With their excellent photography, crisp texts, and intriguing activities, both titles will be useful additions to most natural-history sections."
--School Library Journal (March 2004) (School Library Journal 20040301)

"Each book in the series features solid information, excellent photography, and genuine inquiry investigations. The books are ideal for teachers and students in the middle level. These well-written books are sure to generate interest in real and intriguing scientific explorations."
-- ScienceScope (Febraury 2003) (Science Scope 20030201)

"Good photos and activities and experiments suited to students in the early elementary school grades are the best features of this book."

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7. A basic introduction to seeds that includes projects and experiments. The clearly written, interesting text is enhanced by numerous high-quality, full-color photographs. Each experiment is introduced by a question (e.g., "How does water affect seed growth?" "Can plants grow around obstacles?"), includes a list of materials and instructions, and ends with "Results" and "Conclusion" sections that pose additional questions and encourage the interpretation of experiment results (Pascoe does not give "expected results" before the experiments are actually done). Although the information can be found in other books, the inviting format and investigative approach of Seeds and Seedlings make it a good choice for young readers and teachers looking for science activities.?Carolyn Angus, The Claremont Graduate School, CA
