Here is the adorable picture book Plant the Tiny Seed written and illustrated by Christie Matheson. Read through the beauty of a single seed turning into a beautiful flower.
How do you make a garden grow? In this playful companion to the popular Tap the Magic Tree and Touch the Brightest Star, you will see how tiny seeds bloom into beautiful flowers. And by tapping, clapping, waving, and more, young readers can join in the action! Christie Matheson masterfully combines the wonder of the natural world with the interactivity of reading.
Beautiful collage-and-watercolor art follows the seed through its entire life cycle, as it grows into a zinnia in a garden full of buzzing bees, curious hummingbirds, and colorful butterflies. Children engage with the book as they wiggle their fingers to water the seeds, clap to make the sun shine after rain, and shoo away a hungry snail. Appropriate for even the youngest child, Plant the Tiny Seed is never the same book twice—no matter how many times you read it!
And for curious young nature lovers, a page of facts about seeds, flowers, and the insects and animals featured in the book is included at the end. Fans of Press Here, Eric Carle, and Lois Ehlert will find their next favorite book in Plant the Tiny Seed.
Here are some fun activities that go along with the book! It is 3 pages so make sure to hover over the bottom part so you can click over to see all the activities.AG-9780062393395
This is a super cute picture book for kids ages 4 to 8. Both my 5 and 8 year old girls think it is super cute. My 8 year old especially loves reading this one aloud to Lil Sis. They both have a thing for flowers and gardens. A great book to remind us all the Spring will be here soon!
