Very simple illustrated poem with beautiful pictures. Connects different ‘transformations’ with seeds and flowers.
Amazing illustrations with bright colours show the connections between self and nature. Similar to A Seed, A Flower, the book is fairly short, and can be read a few times. Also depicts cultural diversity.
Takes children step by step with a little girl named Zinnia who plants seeds, waters them, and watches them grow. Illustrations are bright and eye-catching, and older children may be interested in the labels showing the different steps to grow a flower.
Wonderful picture book that shows the miracle of a seed and illustrates the cycle of seeds and flowers. Eric Carle doesn't disappoint with his kid-friendly take on how a flower grows.
A lift the flap board book, with garden animals ‘hiding’ beneath flowers, leaves, etc. on each page. The last page has a mirror under the flap so babies can see themselves.
Simple illustrations and text show children opposites in a garden setting, ie. short worm, long snake. The last page folds out so that children can discover the entire garden and find new opposites.
