Wonderful picture books for a unit on plants/flowers

We began a unit on plants this week. As we have begun to do with all our units, we have completely integrated our Reading with our Science or Social Studies. So I hit up my arsenal of flower picture books (excuse me- I mean my fabulous teaching partner's arsenal). Miss Rumphius is a super sweet book and allows you to talk about how seeds travel.
Another great book for seeds from Sir Eric Carle himself-- I mean really, did he write a bad book?!?
Honestly I feel like I am 8 years old again when I read this one! Imagine the Text-to-self connections!

Hilarious book for talking about sequencing and character traits (oh yay and roots, stems, and flowers!)

Great for vocabulary!

We just finished a unit on Nutrition so this will tie in nicely!

And last but not least!

If I left any good ones out-- Please share! I plan on putting our whole Plant Unit up later this week- complete with Learning Log,so be on the look-out!
