The Tiny Seed

Eric Carle

About the book


A much-loved classic from the creator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar

This is the story of how a tiny seed travels from its parent plant and blows across seas, deserts and mountains, braving many hazards along the way, before finally finding a place to settle and grow into a beautiful flower so that the story can start again. A beautiful and uplifting first introduction to the life cycle of a seed.
