    I'm A Seed

    by Jean Marzollo Year Published: Easy Reading
    Two seeds in the soil are speaking to each other. "I'm a seed!" they both say. One knows it's a marigold, but the other doesn't know what it is. Each plant grows leaves, then flowers, and when the mystery seed grows big and round and orange, the riddle is solved. The clever text weaves facts about plants into the story, and the beautiful collages show a host of wildlife for readers to identify. This is a wonderful introduction to a plant's life cycle.

  • In A Dark, Dark House

    by Jennifer Dussling Year Published: Easy Reading
    From the Publisher The All Aboard Reading series features stories that capture beginning readers' imagination while developing their vocabulary and reading comprehension. The Picture Readers, appropriate for preschoolers, combine a very simple text with rebuses. Flash cards bound in the book help make the transition from the rebus to the printed word. As the levels progress, the stories get longer, and the print size gets smaller, preparing readers for longer books with chapters. All the books are illustrated in full color, and engage a child's curiosity with a range of topics from science to sports, history, and fantasy. Preschool - Grade 1.
