The Tiny Seed is yet another story by our beloved author cum illustrator, Eric Carle, the best-selling author of picture book, The Hungry Caterpillar.
Carried from its flower home by the autumn wind, a tiny seed travels around the world. Its journey is perilous, and the reader learns the fate of fellow seeds: they can fall into the ocean, be burned by the sun, or be eaten by birds. Even those seeds that land and begin to grow are in danger of being stepped on or picked. Against the odds, however, this tiny seed survives to grow into a grand, beautiful flower, ready, in turn, to send its seeds out into the world on the wind.
Brightly colored illustrations bring the narrative to life, inviting young readers to share the tiny seed's exciting journey. Through this book, children can get to know basic information on the seasons and the life cycle of plants. This makes it a good introduction to beginning science projects and an enticement to students to further explore the natural world.
This book is available in hard cover. Simplified chinese. With no hanyu pinyin. For reading to the child, the book may suit children of 5 up. For self-read, the book may suit children of 8 or 9 years old up.
