The Tiny Seed (Picture Book)

Released March 2009

Reviewed by Bob Walch

Eric Carle invites young readers to follow the journey of a small seed that, with any luck, will eventually grow into a beautiful flower. The odyssey begins in the fall when many plants go dormant and their seeds either fall to the ground or are carried aloft by the wind.

Who knows where the seeds may end up, perhaps in the desert, on a mountaintop, or in a fertile valley. Some even become a meal for a hungry mouse or bird.

After a long winter, the dormant seeds that survive will be irrigated by the melting snow and spring rain. They will sprout into small plants that will grow into colorful foliage before the cycle starts all over again.

You'll find a seed-embedded paper comes with this book so that you and your child can watch the miracle of the seed up close and personal. Follow the planting instructions and in about six weeks you'll have your own flower.
