A cactus seed produces a shoot when it lands where conditions are right for growing. Next, a seedling appears. Roots of a cactus grow close to the surface. Spines start to cover the plant. Cacti take many different shapes. Cactus flowers bloom in the spring. Pollinated flowers drop and colorful fruit with seeds replace them. The seeds start the cycle all over again!
From Seed to Cactus is one of many books in the Start to Finish series. This nonfiction book includes a table of contents, an index, a glossary, highlighted words, and headings. Vivid photographs are included on each page spread. Readers learn more about life science in this educational book. After reading this book, which would be appropriate to read at home or at school, readers will want to spot a cactus with flowers or perhaps see a shoot becoming a seedling.
