Grow Flower, Grow by Marie Smith

A flower starts out as a very small seed. 

The seed gets planted in the dirt. 

The seed needs lots of water to help it grow. 

 

Soon, a green stem and green leaves will poke out of the dirt. 

Then, a flower will start to bloom. 

Water and sunlight are a flower's food.

So, water and sunlight will help keep a flower alive. 

What does "bloom" mean? 

Possible Answers:

To live

To die

To eat

To have flower petals 

Correct answer:

To have flower petals 

Explanation:

To help us answer this question, we need to think about what we know about flowers. 

They start as a seed. They have a stem and leaves. But what makes flowers pretty and colorful? Their flower petals. 

The text says, "Then, a flower will start to bloom" This is the final step to grow a flower, and the petals are the final thing to show on a flower. The best answer, is "To have flower petals".
