The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle

site search by freefind advanced

In The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle, travel along with a tiny seed as it faces all manner of dangers on its journey to becoming a flowering plant. Readers watch as the tiny seed faces the forces of nature (like wind) and man (like being trod upon), and will be cheering for the little seed and amazed at the drama (and life lessons!) inherent in the flowering process.

In typical Carle fashion, "the pages, like the seed pods, burst with color."  There is kind of a lot of text for this age group, so we paraphrase parts. Also, if you'll be reading this aloud, order the larger version (which we link to at left) as some versions are very SMALL!
