One day when she realized she had no tears left to cry for the onions she packed up and moved to Spain, fell in love with a handsome Systems Administrator, had two kids, became a children's author and lived happily ever after.

  3. TRAVELLING SEEDS
Discover how seeds travel from place to place. Our narrator excitedly tells us how she saw a pear fall from a tree in the meadow and how a cow came along and ate it. Then the seed began a journey.  Where would the seed end up?  Would it grow into a big tree with pears of its own?

Using the pear and cow example we can stimulate more questions about seed dispersal and, like all the books in MUMMY NATURE series, Travelling Seeds can be used as a jumping off point for discussion of other topics such as seed germination, plant parts or how plants animals and people interact in nature.  On the last page we can see more examples of ways that seeds can be spread.

What we can learn:
  How seeds of fruit can be spread when eaten by animals or people
  Other ways that seeds can be spread: by wind, by water, by sticking to travelling creatures
