Seed Babies piques the child's interest about how seeds grow. It provides interesting information about seeds in a conversational style between two brothers and the various seeds they encounter. These seeds offer grammatical advice, chastises poor reasoning, provide enlightening information, and will often encourage the boys to go and discover answers to their questions themselves. In turn, the author lets the reader know that she too hopes that they will plant some seeds and make discoveries of their own. The last few chapters venture into the world of insects, frogs and various other eggs, encouraging children to consider the beginnings of various forms of life. In the end, this short book provides more questions than answers and helps children learn to be inquisitive about nature and to investigate answers to their questions. - Summary by SweetHome
