" again, nice idea, terribly written " said.

"This text is not as good as Weiss's text on potatoes for primary students. Some statements are vague, even inaccurate: "A bulb is packed with all kinds of amazing things. Inside each bulb is a tiny, plant ready to burst out." Most teachers would encourage students to be more precise about the "amazing things" if students were writing, so I don't think there's any excuse for a professional writer to write this way. A bulb is not like a matryoshka doll, complete with a ready-made plant inside that simply needs to get larger--so I think Weiss leads young readers astray here. Additionally, I prefer a distinction between shoots (which are more likely to suggest central early stems of a plant) than "buds".
This is an "okay" text, but I have the feeling there are better ones out there. Having said that, the photographs are indeed wonderful, and there is a useful life cycle flow chart at the end of the book.
