The Tiny Seed - Eric Carle

In Autumn, a strong wind blows some flower seeds. The wind blows them for a long time. Some seeds do not make it due to the sun, icy mountain, the ocean, and the desert. The other seeds continue sailing while a tiny seed is unable to go as fast as the others seeds and it stays lower to the ground. When all the seeds finally land on the ground, a bird eats most of the seeds, but not the tiny seed because it is too small for the bird to see it. The seeds are now settled in the ground. During the winter time a mouse living in the dirt eats a seed, but not the tiny seed. Then comes Spring and the seeds become plants. A big fat weed grows much faster than the new little plants takes away what is needed for the new plants to grow. Seeds start growing into plants but the tiny seed is still a seed until a rain shower comes. The other seeds have become flowers. Later the tiny seed becomes a flower and grows really tall. In Autumn, the tiny seed that became a flower has many seeds within it that the wind blows and starts the whole process over again. This is a great book for K-3rd grade to help them understand the process of how seeds grow into plants and what causes them to not grow into plants. I would have my students to plant seeds and write about the process of the seeds growing.
