I found a fun and educational book this week at the library. Plants Can’t Sit Still by Rebecca Hirsch and illustrated by Mia Posada (Millbrook Press, 2016) is loaded with colorful kid-friendly illustrations, fun to read text and lots of action verbs all meant to show the many ways that plants grow, move and disperse. It’s perfect to read when you’re feeling a little cabin fever. I can just see all the squirmy little bodies itching to imitate some plant movement when they hear the words wiggle, slither, creep and explode!
This book would be perfect for teachers to read with elementary students at the beginning of a plant unit, for teachers to use to teach regular and irregular verbs, and for families feeling antsy with cabin fever. Read it and see if you can keep from tumbling, bouncing or sprinkling along!
For a lesson plan to go with this book please see my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
