Every Little Seed

Every Little Seed
Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

Grandpa told Mom, and Mom told me: The secret of a plant lives in every little seed. Seeds are truly amazing!

Did you know that every seed, no matter how small (microscopic) or large (weighing up to 14 pounds), contains everything it needs to one day grow into a plant?

Three generations of a gardening family work together to bring a backyard garden to full bloom. Young readers are taken through each important step, beginning with planting in the spring and ending with harvesting in the fall. And let's not forget the buzzy and buggy inhabitants, including bees, butterflies, and other insects (friends as well as pests). At the end of the harvest season, the family collects and stores the seeds for next year's garden.

Rhyming text and lush artwork bring the wonders and joys of gardening to life. Back matter includes information about seeds.
