It Starts with a Seed

Publisher: Words & Pictures Press

A seed becomes a sapling, then a young tree, until, after many years, it grows into a large tree with roots and branches filling the page. At each stage of the tree's growth, the growing tree provides support, food or a home for a variety of creatures: it's a perch for a dragonfly, a place for birds to nest and squirrels to scamper.

This sensitively drawn ink and watercolour book about the life of a tree within its own wider ecosystem also features a gently rhyming text. The book itself, with thick cream paper and gold endpapers, is a work of art, and will be enjoyed and treasured by children and adults.
