5.0 out of 5 stars Your child's first gardening book! 8 Sep 2002
A lovely book; Intelligently, but simply written to explain how plants grow.
Sam the cat plants some sunflower seeds, and just can't wait for them to flower. Flaps reveal the things Sam can't see once he has planted the seeds.
A beautiful pop up sunflower surprises Sam and his friends, and makes them all want to grow more plants next year.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice pics and flaps, stiff text, no story 31 May 2005
By A Customer
The idea is nice, the kids like to open the flaps and see what's going on under the ground, but I found the text very stiff and the storyline lacking any sparkle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sam plants a sunflower 15 April 2009
A delightful story for young gardeners.
The story takes the reader through all the stages from planting, seedlings, flowering and the flower dying but producing more seeds for the following year. With the lift up tabs the reader can see what is happening to their seeds underground. Suitable for early readers.
