Mike needs to earn twenty-five dollars, and he thinks he has the perfect plan: to grow sunflowers and sell the seeds. Mike is not the most experienced gardener, however, and hits a few bumps along the way. Fortunately, his little sister, Aster, is there to help with her knowledge and curiosity. Seeds and Sunflowers is the charming story of how this brother-sister duo reaches a different kind of success than they had imagined. The book can also be used to teach students how to make inferences and draw conclusions and to identify complex sentences.
