This is a slim paperback book with stapled binding, "We Read About Seeds and How They Grow (Webster Junior Science Series)," by Harold E. Tannnebaum and Nathan Stillman. Illustrated by James Cummins. Published 1960 by Webster Publishing Co., USA. For children ages approximately 7 - 9.

Image 1 here shows front cover; Image 2 shows back cover; Image 3 shows title page; Images 4 and 5 show sample pages.

Size: Book is approximately 8-7/8 x 7-5/8 inches. 24 pages. Sweet illustrations in color and black-and-white.

Condition issues: Heavy wear -- creased, rubbed, and grubby covers; previous owner "Mrs. Krimgold" wrote her name at front top right. Cover starting to split along spine (I've reinforced it with archival tape). All pages present; no markings. The binding is still holding; staples are not rusted.

All about seeds: what they are, what they do, how they grow. Examples given in very simple experiments such as charting the development of a sprouting bean.

Even with its flaws, this book retains vintage appeal and is still useful and educational.
