"Follow the growth of seeds as they sprout, grow buds, and burst into bloom in this poetic celebration of nature for babies and toddlers"-- Sometimes the quietest moments in nature are the most remarkable, like the slow but steady growth of a seed as it pushes up from rich soil to bloom as spring flowers. Painterly textures and gentle, short rhymes with carefully selected verbs match the curling quality of the seeds' delicate sprouting tendrils. VERDICT Preliterate young gardeners will love the images of the process unfurling.
Underground, seeds sleep until spring. Rain comes, seeds sprout, and flowers burst into bloom! Amber Hendricks’ short expressive lines with repeated action words make this poem perfect for sharing with babies and toddlers, and Gavin Scott’s warm, cozy illustrations encourage all ages to appreciate nature. Little ones will want to read this board book again and again.
