About this Book

Turn the step-by-step dials and watch a visual sequence of how things grow, from start to finish!

Each dial has five full-colour pictures that help young children understand the process of growth in animals and plants. Informative, simple text explains what is seen in each picture. Included are eight different subjects: butterfly; apples; pine tree; deer; sunflower; chicken; corn; and frog.

Reviews and Comments

"This 'step-by-step dial' book is suitable for children between 4 and 7 years old. It is well illustrated, has concise text and is very sturdy. The information provided for each organism is very interesting and more detailed than is generally found in similar children's books. The coverage of growth in plants is particularly welcome since this area of biology is usually neglected in books for young children."
