Winner of the silver award at the Junior Design Awards 2018 - Best Pre-Schooler Book 2-5 Years "This is a wonderful first gardening book for young children that perfectly captures the magic of growing a beautiful plant from a tiny seed." - Jamie Butterworth, RHS Ambassador A delightful introduction to plant life and nature, as little ones get hands-on to grow their own sunflowers. Includes sunflower seeds, a sunflower height chart, and exciting flaps. RHS I Can Grow a Sunflower is a friendly approach to plant science and a great gift for little gardeners. Sixteen bright board book pages reveal the life cycle of a sunflower, and the excitement of growing a plant from seed. Little children follow the journey of a mystery seed, learning how to plant it, and what it needs to grow. Could it magically become the tallest of all the garden flowers? RHS I Can Grow a Sunflower includes facts about garden creatures, from the helpful ladybird to busy worms, and the visiting bees and butterflies who spread pollen. Children will enjoy read-aloud text, easy-to-follow pictures that show the life cycle of a sunflower - underground, above ground, and through the year - and flaps that show plants growing and creatures hiding. RHS I Can Grow a Sunflower includes a packet of sunflower seeds and a height chart that reinforces how tall a sunflower grows, making this the perfect book for getting young gardeners hands-on for the very first time.
