" Nature's Miracles " titles encourage children to explore the natural world for themselves by observing nature's activities. The books also encourage kids to take part in activities of their own that promote a sense of responsibility toward the Earth's plants, animals, and natural resources. Each book presents a cheerfully illustrated story about children who explore nature's wonders. Notes for parents and teachers that follow each story suggest activities, further reading, and Web sites related to the book's theme. Color illustrations on every page. The little girl in this story plants seeds with her grandfather, and then tends her new plant, giving it water and sunlight. Gradually it develops a stem, and then sprouts leaves and flowers, which are visited by insects that carry the flowers' pollen to create new plants.
