Review by: AudioFile Magazine - September 1, 2012
"Gail Gibbons is known for her ability to bring the nonfiction world into focus for young students. Through pictures, captions, and text, this book provides a window into the world of growing things—including discussion of such topics as pollination, the seed-to-plant process, and a do-it-yourself seed project. Erin Mallon complements Gibbons’s text with a clear, clipped, and purposeful narration. As Mallon explains at the outset, she reads text first and then captions; in this way the listener has the guidelines for “reading” along. Her volume is louder for the text and softer as she reads the supporting information. Long pauses are provided for poring over the pages.

Review by: School Library Journal - August 1, 2012
"Gail Gibbons's introduction to plant growth and reproduction (Holiday House, 1991) offers clear yet basic information about the entire plant cycle from seed pollination to mature growth. Included at the end of the text are simple facts about seeds and plants as well as a 'From Seed to Plant' project that explains how to grow a bean plant. Gibbon's distinctive bold and colorful illustrations include easy-to-read labels, with simple and clear descriptions throughout the text. Erin Mallon's reading is clear and well-paced, allowing students to read along easily. Page-turn signals are optional. For school and public library collections."
