    The book treats the journey of a pair of pear seeds to trees that bear pairs that containseeds as a stage play It s an interesting idea, but I didn t really like how it worked out, ending up being somewhat repetitive, weird, and annoying Kids could relate though Also, there were some awful puns, which is normally a selling point for me.

    Just was NOT a fan I think it was because my expectations were completely different from what it ended up being I expected this book to be something I could hand my middle school science teachers to help them teach the plant cycle and instead even I was confused as it went along The science coupled with the element of it being a play got strange for me and by the end I didn t quite know what I was reading I m not sure what the intent of this book was, but it was a huge miss for me and I re Just was NOT a fan I think it was because my expectations were completely different from what it ended up being I expected this book to be something I could hand my middle school science teachers to help them teach the plant cycle and instead even I was confused as it went along The science coupled with the element of it being a play got strange for me and by the end I didn t quite know what I was reading I m not sure what the intent of this book was, but it was a huge miss for me and I really was hoping for a new picture book for my science department Not recommended
