About this book

Readers young and old will enjoy this introduction to the marvels of the natural world: watching a tadpole hatch from an egg, a caterpillar turn into a butterfly, an acorn become a mighty oak and a glorious sunflower grow from a tiny seed!

Barbara Reid's love of the outside was celebrated in her acclaimed picture books Picture a Tree and Picture the Sky, and in Watch It Grow, she blends simple text with her signature Plasticine illustrations to awaken curiosity and encourage learning.

The book includes graphic illustrations of the four backyard life cycles.


Praise for Watch It Grow: Backyard Life Cycles:

“Barbara Reid has worked her magic again. I highly recommend that you purchase and share Watch It Grow: Backyard Life Cycles with every young person you can find to help nurture the next generation of nature lovers.” — CM: Canadian Review of Materials
