Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fans of Miss Rumphius will adore this gorgeous picture book which introduces the kind, nature-loving Miss Maple, who celebrates the miracle in each seed.

Miss Maple gathers lost seeds that havent yet found a place to sprout. She takes them on field trips to explore places to grow. In her cozy maple tree house, she nurtures them; keeping them safe and warm until it's time for them to find roots of their own, and grow into the magnificent plants theyre destined to become.

Eliza Wheelers luminous paintings feature gorgeous landscapes, lush foliage and charming details. Her tender story celebrates the potential found in each seed—since even the grandest tree and most brilliant flower had to grow from the smallest of seeds.

Celebrate every season with Miss Maple, from Earth Day to graduations to harvest festivals.

The Carrot Seed is appropriate for a group of first graders, this book teaches a few lessons such as patients, persistence, not listening to discouraging people, and trusting your instinct. The book is excellent on repetition and high frequency words like “it, I’m, a, come and his”. These words are a great enforcer for building early literacy. The illustration complements the storyline very well, and the drawings are simple for the children to understand.
