I did really like this book as I read it out loud to my 3 year old granddaughter. She enjoyed it as well talking about the pictures and what was happening. This is a perfect book to buy or check out around Spring time to help teach children how to plant a 'garden' you can even to what the children are doing.
This book is great for the classroom. It's easy to read and follow along with. This book is great for k-2 when they plant a bean. The students can find more activities to do in the back of the book and they can find out more information about beans. I really liked the activity where students bring in seeds from home or fruit they ate maybe from the cafeteria; the children can connect the lesson to their own personal life which is important.
I thought this book would be a little simple for Charlotte, but she LOVED it. She's very interested in gardening and plants, and this book's step by step story of taking a dried bean to a bean plant was just her speed. We are actually working on planting beans now, because of this book. I asked Charlotte if she liked it or really liked it, and she said she LOVED it.
A simple, very child-friendly book about a child who plants a bean and watches it grow. After awhile, the child is able to pick bean pods off his plant and enjoy the brand new beans he grew all by himself!
Loved this book! My daughter's nickname is Bean so throughout the whole book we compared how the planted bean grows and how she grows. She thought it was great!
