The Life Cycle of the Sunflower
By Linda Tagliaferro
This early reader book captures the development of the sunflower from seed through germination, growth, flower development and pollination and on to seed development. It does not depict commercial sunflower production but focuses on the growth of a single plant. This would be an excellent book to teach about the life cycle of a plant. The book includes a glossary, recommended reading list and suggested Internet sites.
