Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In autumn, a strong wind blows flower seeds high in the air and carries them far across the land. One by one, many of the seeds are lost — burned by the sun, fallen into the ocean, eaten by a bird. But some survive the long winter and, come spring, sprout into plants, facing new dangers — trampled by playing children, picked as a gift for a friend. Soon only the tiniest seed remains, growing into a giant flower and, when autumn returns, sending its own seeds into the wind to start the process over again.

Eric Carle's eloquent text and brilliant collages turn the simple life cycle of a plant into an exciting story, a nature lesson, and an inspiring message of the importance of perseverance.

Review:

"This picture book admirably conveys the miracle of a seed." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The board book version works from the standpoint of the illustrations, but there is a large amount of text in small type so the book's appeal may be to younger children with fairly long attention spans." Children's Literature

Synopsis:

Carle follows the journey of seeds from being blown by the wind to taking root and sprouting seeds of their own.

Synopsis:

With his inimitable bright collage art and simple text, Carle follows the journey of a seed, from being blown by the wind to taking root and sprouting seeds of its own. Full color.

Synopsis:

Join the tiny seed on an adventure as it becomes a giant flower!
