The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle (Author)
Paperback: 32 pages

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.
