Book Love: Do You Know Which Ones Will Grow?

Title: Do You Know Which Ones Will Grow?
Author: Susan A. Shea
Illustrator: Tom Slaughter
Why I Love This Book: This book is a fun, and humorous, way of talking about living and non-living things with young children. Written in question format with rhyming text, the pages include a lift-the-flap feature to reveal the rhymes, making it that much more engaging and interactive. I love that it uses questions to approach the concept, because that allows them to think and develop their reasoning skills.  Finally, the paintings used for the illustrations are brightly colored and simply delightful. This book is a great match for kids in preschool-first grade, as they are developing their understanding of things in the world.
