Books Stduents Enjoyed this Year, Alhamdulillaah

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
Alhamdulillaah, during our study of Plants and Seeds, several books enhanced the unit and added to the learning experience (This unit study will be posted on A Muslim Child Grows Up some time soon ins'allaah).

The following books complimented our study of Plants and Seeds:

What Are Seeds? (Plants Close-Up) is a book that students in grades 1 and 2 may particularly enjoy because of the accessible language and bright, colourful pictures. In simple language, students learn about what seeds are and how Allaah has created them to contain everything needed for a new plant to grow, by His Permission. Also, alhamdulillaah, the pictures in the book are almost exclusively of seeds and plants.

How a Seed Grows shows students, step by softly illustrated step, the process of seed growth. The language is not as accessible as the language in What Are Seeds ,so this book may be better chosen for your read- aloud time and then placed in your classroom/homeschool library where, students can revisit the text and retell the story using their own words (which will be scaffolded by your read aloud in'shaa allaah).

How We Use Plants for Food is similar - language wise - to How a Seed Grows but it is packed with information about how Allaah has created plants to provide a variety of foods for human beings. Subhana'Alaah! Children will see, from yet another angle, the great and expansive Mercy of Allaah.

Seeds and Fruits is very much like How We Use Plants for Food and children will learn how different seeds and fruits not only provide food for humans, but animals as well.

Are there any books that your students/children enjoyed when studying seeds and plants?

Until the next book in'shaa allaah....
