What the community says about A Seed Is Sleepy

    "A Seed Is Sleepy is a beautifully illustrated children's book that communicates an anthropomorphized view of plant seeds to children. The book is likely a little too verbose for very young children, but would be good for a child in kindergarten or first grade. I really enjoyed reading it with my niece, who was about 6 when we read it."

    "I liked this book for many reasons: it presented seeds in a way that i feel is approachable to children and I liked that it included more than typical seeds. There was additional text to read with facts on most pages. There was more text in this book than the egg book which means this book is not appropriate for preschool whereas I do use the egg book with preschoolers. I also felt the increase in text, though being very educational, took away from focusing on the images and comparing the seeds. Some of the larger seeds were cut off on the edges of the page so you could not tell their true size in order to make room for the text. I also took off one star because the cursive font (the main text for the book) was difficult for the children to read and they needed help. If you use the book with children 7+ who have been taught cursive, then this book should be fine"

    "This is not really a graphic novel but an illustrated children's book. That being said, the illustrations are really good. The book is lovely and a great teaching tool for young children. My kids really took to the drawings and it is a regular on the bedtime reading list."

    "My kids loved this and so did I. I actually have a copy of An Egg is Quiet, but I prefer this. It's challenging but accessible and teaches well too. The illustrations are gorgeous also."

    "Good picture book. It has beautiful pictures that are easy for kids to understand about seeds and how plants grow. There is a little more text so it might not be for really young kids."

    "I ordered A Seed Is Sleepy online and it came in today. I figured this would be a fun book to share with my children. The artistry in this book presenting beautiful pictures of various seeds is a lot of fun to flip through. I shared it with my 5 and 7 year old and they both loved it. It was a fun way to teach them about the array of seeds and plants in a factual manner that they could visually see and learn from. It's a really great how Dianna Aston could write the material along with Sylvia Long's artwork, to present this material on a level that children could understand and really enjoy."

    "A Seed Is Sleepy is one of the best books for eight year olds. My son read it over and over and couldn't get tired of it. It's one of those books that live in one's mind even when they grow old. He always tells me stories about it and re-reads it from time to time."

    "This was a great book to be a great educational guide. My grandchildren love plants and I plan to make this a gift to them. I like the colorful pictures and descriptions. "

    "Most of Dianna Aston and Sylvia Long's work is geared towards a younger audience, and "A Seed Is Sleepy" is no exception. By age twelve, children should be far more cognitively advanced that this book warrants, so while it might be a good read for younger children (around age 5), it'll be far below the level of a twelve year old."

    "This is a great starter for any child that is looking at getting into seeds. This is a book designed for children to discover the fascinating world of seeds. It also has quite a few facts about plants in general. A great book to have at home or in the classroom. "
