Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 25 March 2005
Eric Carle is great at imparting information to children in an appealing story format and in this book he covers the annual cycle of a flower from a seed. The tiny seed finds a place to grow while many others falling by the wayside, and then grows into a big beautiful flower. Finally we see, in the autumn, the demise of the flower and the release of a new batch of seeds which brings us back to the beginning again. As ever, Eric Carle's illustrations are colourful and refreshingly distinctive and the story is straightforwardly pleasing. My children enjoy following the progress of the tiny seed amongst its bigger siblings, spotting it on each page as well as the one loses its way in that particular paragraph because of snowy or arid ground for example. Also, I like it that it isn't the biggest seed that makes it but the little one against whom you'd think the odds would be stacked. There's a good subliminal message there that you don't have to be the biggest to do the best.
