What did you like about the book? Among the beautiful pages of “Things That Grow,” we see through gorgeous illustrations the processes that plants and animals grow to maturity.  This is a very simple yet comprehensive book that teaches how things start out as a tiny seed or tiny egg and have the ability to grow into something huge and magnificent.  The illustrations are so beautiful and well done.

Anything you didn’t like about it?  There is nothing I didn’t like about this book.

To whom would you recommend this book?  This is a great book for those who love science.  Some read-a-likes are “Animal Journeys” by Patricia Hegarty and “Curiositree: Natural World: A Visual Compendium of Wonders from Nature” by AJ Wood.

Who should buy this book? Children’s libraries

Where would you shelve it? juvenile non-fiction

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? no
