Blue takes care of her first plant! Perfect for springtime and for discussions about Earth Day and the environment. In this original first experience story, Blue learns all about how plants grow in school when each student plants a seed to take home. Blue is anxious for her seed to sprout--but she learns that she must be patient and tend her seed well, because plants need care and time to grow big and strong, just like us! Along the way, Blue learns about how plants make clean air to breathe and healthy fruits and vegetables to eat. As an added bonus, the inside back cover shows readers how to plant their own sunflower seeds, just like Blue! This book will be printed on 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper with soy-ink. The paper is FSC certified. FSC certified paper is paper that's certified by the Forest Stewardship Council -- a non-profit organization devoted to making sure that paper comes from forests that are well-managed, maintained, replenished, and where soil and waterways are protected.
