Have you ever noticed a yellow dandelion growing from a crack in the sidewalk? It may be hard to believe, but this little wild plant has a very important role to play in its habitat.

As readers spend 24 hours with a dandelion, they will discover:

  • how dandelion nectar is an essential food for bumblebees in early spring.
  • how a dandelion’s juicy leaves, stems, and flowers are food for many different munching critters.
  • how the fluffy, flyaway seeds can become a meal for many creatures, such as ants, birds, and mice.

This book is packed with core science vocabulary and a perfect introduction to plant lives and life cycles. The carefully leveled text and beautiful images are a great way to get young readers enthused about nonfiction books and will get little nature fans seeing the humble dandelion in a whole new light.
