Seed Soil Sun
By Cris Peterson
In Seed Soil Sun, Cris Peterson describes the seemingly miraculous process by which air and water combine with seed, soil, and sun to create nearly all the food we eat. Using the corn plant as an example, she takes the reader through the story of germination and growth of a tiny corn seed into a giant plant reaching high into the air with roots extending over six feet into the ground. The book also discusses the make-up of soil and the amazing creatures that live there from microscopic one-celled bacteria to moles, amoebas, and earthworms.
