More About This Title Travelling Seeds


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

***** 5 star review by Jessyca Garcia for Readers' Favorite

Travelling Seeds by Rebecca Bielawski is the third book in the Mummy Nature series. This book teaches kids about how far seeds travel and how plants grow from a little seed. Bielawski uses colorful illustrations to demonstrate the process of germination.

I thought Travelling Seeds was a very educational book for children as well as adults. I read this book with my 4 year old and she liked the pictures, especially the cow. Bielawski throwing in that cows have 4 parts to their stomachs was clever and also something I did not know. The story is mostly written in a rhyme which makes it flow nicely when read aloud. Some kids may be able to read this book by themselves. The only difficult word in it would be "germination". Bielawski used a pear seed as an example, which I thought was a good idea since kids can recognize this common fruit.Having read this book it does make one wonder where seeds and other things travel to. This could also be a lesson as to not litter.

Bielawski has done a great job. Travelling Seeds is a well thought out book. This is the type of book I would want my child to read in school. In fact I would recommend it to all preschool teachers to have in their classrooms. Not only can the teachers read the book to the kids but they can also plant seeds themselves. Because of this book I will be planting a seed of some sort and have my child take care of it so she can see it grow.
