Welcome to Book Seeds By Blossom & Root!
Using inspiration from beautiful and captivating children's literature selections, you and your child will investigate nature-based S.T.E.A.M. concepts, complete nature journaling activities, prepare delicious recipes, and celebrate the magic of words.
Book Seeds By Blossom & Root can be used as a stand-alone curriculum for the young child (ages 2 to 5), as a curriculum base when combined with the math and phonics programs of your choice for the early elementary learner (ages 6 to 8), or as a fun add-on to your existing curriculum. It can be used with one child, with children of multiple ages, in ECE and elementary classrooms, or for non-homeschooling families who simply want to enjoy books, S.T.E.A.M. activities, and nature study together. They also make a great compliment for families using Blossom and Root Early Years, Kindergarten, or Elementary curricula.
To use Book Seeds By Blossom & Root, simply read the book selections (for these issues: Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt, Planting a Rainbow, A Rainbow of My Own, A Nest is Noisy, The Tiny Seed, and The Very Hungry Caterpillar) as many times as you like, and complete the activities in the order and schedule that works best for your family. Most families complete the activities in a single issue of Book Seeds over a two-week period.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1) Is this a secular resource?
Yes! Our program is 100% completely secular. However, it can also be easily incorporated into a Christian homeschool by adding your own bible study. However, you may wish to screen the content prior to using it, as our Book Seeds issues reflect a secular point of view when it comes to science.
2) Will this product be mailed to me?
No. Our product is a digital download and will be delivered to you as soon as your payment is processed. You can send it to a local print shop to be printed and bound, or keep it on a tablet or computer for reference. (We recommend always keeping a copy on your computer or tablet, as there are links to videos in most of the issues.)
3) Can I print out multiple copies?
Your purchase is for your family alone. Feel free to make as many copies as you like for your own family.

You may go at whatever pace suits your needs. A single Book Seeds issue takes most families about two weeks to complete, spending around 30 minutes per day on an activity.
5) Are there any worksheets or workbooks included? Do Book Seeds come with the book they are inspired by?
