Description

Book 3 in the MUMMY NATURE series of children's books.

Discover how seeds travel from place to place. Our narrator excitedly tells us how she saw a pear fall from a tree in the meadow and how a cow came along and ate it. Then the seed began a journey. Where would the seed end up? Would it grow into a big tree with pears of its own?

Using the pear and cow example we can stimulate more questions about seed dispersal and, like all the books in MUMMY NATURE series, Travelling Seeds can be used as a jumping of point for discussion of other topics such as seed germination, plant parts or how plants animals and people interact in nature. On the last page we can see more examples of ways that seeds can be spread.

What we can learn:

How seeds of fruit can be spread when eaten by animals or people Other ways that seeds can be spread: by wind, by water, by sticking to travelling creatures Simple ideas about germination The cycle of: seed > plant > flower > fruit > seed A cow stomach has 4 parts New words: Germination, sprout, roots, seedling PAGES: 24
WORDS: 283
LEVEL: Preschool - 6yrs

MUMMY NATURE series. Nurturing children's curiosity
Each book in the series is one mini nature lesson wrapped up in colour and rhyme. These books are intended for very young children including toddlers and will give them just a glimpse into some of the wonders of the natural world. Illustrated for maximum vibrancy and visual impact, using rhyme to engage young minds and encourage participation. Read the rhymes to your children and soon they will be reading them to you! The narrator is a small child and keen observer who tells us in short rhyming phrases everything she thinks we should know, and all about the magical things she sees around her. Sometimes she is camouflaged in the long grass and other times she has to climb a tree to get a better look.
