Product description

This is a classic picture book by Eric Carle - The Tiny Seed. When the tiny seed is blown away from its parent plant, it travels a very long way - over seas, deserts and mountains. The tiny seed survives the hazards of the journey and finally falls onto fertile earth. It grows and grows, becoming the tallest, biggest flower for miles around. Then one day the wind blows and thousands of the flower's seeds begin their own journeys. Eric Carle is an internationally bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator of books for very young children. Eric lives in Massachusetts with his wife, Barbara. The Carles opened The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Massachusetts in 2002.

Editorial reviews

Beautiful and simple. The Tiny Seed introduces young children to one of nature's most enduring life cycles. We follow the tiny seed through its initial survival after a breeze carries it away from its mother plant on a journey across fields, mountains and even the sea! Reflecting the cyclical nature of the seeds life we finish the tale when the tiny seed has grown and has tiny seeds of her own. (Ages 2 -4 years) (Kirkus UK)

Back cover copy

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.
