What with collecting and looking at a lot of pods and seeds lately, these two books from my childhood have been on my mind. Does anyone else remember them? Thanks to the internet I even found images of the covers from back then (about the early seventies?). I'm not sure exactly why these two left such a lasting impression, but I do think they helped ignite an interest in little natural things. It makes me think about the influence we have as parents in ensuring the natural world is seen as important and valuable by the next technology-cacooned generation.
