Product description

A classic story which captures the miracle of a tiny seed as it grows into a beautiful giant flower! Carried from its flower home by the autumn wind, a tiny seed travels around the world. Its journey is perilous, and other seeds fall into the ocean, are burned by the sun or are eaten by birds. But against the odds, this tiny seed survives to grow into a grand and beautiful flower, ready in turn to send its own seeds out on the wind… Weaving in themes of perseverance and hope, Eric Carle’s story is a joyous demonstration that nature is a miracle we cannot take for granted. Brightly coloured collage pictures bring the narrative to life, in a timeless tale which educates readers about the seasons and the life cycle of plants.
