Tiny Seed by Eric Carle

Book Description

This is a classic picture book by Eric Carle - The Tiny Seed. When the tiny seed is blown away from its parent plant, it travels a very long way - over seas, deserts and mountains. The tiny seed survives the hazards of the journey and finally falls onto fertile earth. It grows and grows, becoming the tallest, biggest flower for miles around. Then one day the wind blows and thousands of the flower's seeds begin their own journeys. Eric Carle is an internationally bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator of books for very young children. Eric lives in Massachusetts with his wife, Barbara. The Carles opened The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Massachusetts in 2002.

Calm with the Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle Calm with the Very Hungry Caterpillar, Hardback (June 2016)

When your monkey mind feels too jumpy... take a deep breath... to clear the cobwebs from your mind. Featuring contemplative artwork by the creator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, this book helps you to relax and calm your monkey mind. It helps children learn mindfulness as a life skill in a way they can build into their lives as a daily practice.

Nonsense Show by Eric Carle Nonsense Show, Paperback (June 2016)

Nonsense lies at the heart of many beloved nursery rhymes. Children readily accept odd statements like "the cow jumped over the moon" and "the dish ran away with the spoon." This bending of reality is also basic to surrealism. In this book, nonsense and surrealism combine to spark creativity and imagination.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Beautiful and simple. The Tiny Seed introduces young children to one of nature's most enduring life cycles. We follow the tiny seed through its initial survival after a breeze carries it away from its mother plant on a journey across fields, mountains and even the sea! Reflecting the cyclical nature of the seeds life we finish the tale when the tiny seed has grown and has tiny seeds of her own. (Ages 2 -4 years) (Kirkus UK)

US Kirkus Review » The unnatural history of a seed smaller than the others ("Will it be able to keep up. . . ?") that sails on while one, flying too high, is burned up by the sun (flames, yet) and a second "falls into the water and drowns." Once landed, the little seed's luck holds: it is invisible to the bird that eats another seed (though not to us), ditto the mouse wintering under the ground, and though it's a late-bloomer ("Hurry!") it doesn't stop growing until it overtops houses and trees to become "a giant flower." Comes fall it scatters its seeds to the wind, starting the cyclorama again. So scaled, the illustrations are gross in either sense of the word. (Kirkus Reviews)
