The Tiny Seed

Publisher: Puffin

In the autumn, flower seeds are blown up in the air and across the land. Some seeds are burned by the sun while others land on ice and die. Seeds land in the ocean or the dry desert where they cannot grow.

Eventually, after a long trip the seeds settle on the earth. Birds and mice eat some seeds, but in the spring others start to grow.

Weeds kill off some plants, but one tiny seed escapes all the dangers of the journey. It grows from a tiny seed into a huge sunflower.

In the autumn it makes seeds and these are blown away... The story of a plant told with Eric Carle’s bold, bright illustrations. Excellent for classroom use.
