This would be a good book to use to teach students about the cycle of plants and how they grow. It is interesting to follow one seed on its journey from a seed into a flower and back again. There are more words in this book than in many of Carle's other books, which makes me think this should be recommended for elementary school kids. The illustrations are captivating and it can be enjoyed by many.

Would've been great as a science book if the seed hadn't grown into an outrageously huge flower. So, is it a metaphor, meant to help a small child now that s/he can apply persistence and eventually succeed, des[ite a variety of obstacles? Oh well, the art is, of course, marvelous, and the rhythm of the text is mesmerizing - it's Carle, after all.

This is one of my favorite authors and books by him! This book goes over the life cycle of plants from the seed to the flower growing big and tall. This would be a great book to read for a read aloud to the class or during a unit. The illustrations showcase the life cycle of the plant really well which will help the students follow along and understand the process.

An informational book ...

An informational book about seeds and how the wind may take them into a journey like through the seasons and how one other seeds ends up in the ground and turns into a flower which later releases more seeds. it goes into small details of how the seed lands on the floor and doesn't get eaten by a bird. and how in the spring it starts to grow into a plant. Ages 4-7 Head Start

I loved this book. Ev...

I loved this book. Everything from the pictures, to the storyline, plot, and the seed paper in the book for students to plant. The pictures in this story are different, they look like paintings as opposed to photos. I remember reading eric carl books and wanting to paint pictures to match the ones I saw. The pictures also support the journey of the seed, which brings me to my next point. I really liked the plot in this book. We always wonder how the seeds from plants plant themselves and become plants in other places. This book answers those questions!

In my opinion, this is...

In my opinion, this is and excellent book to present to early childhood students when explaining the seasons and plant growth. The language was very clear and descriptive and could be used to introduce many new vocabulary words to younger students. The writing flowed appropriately and addressed all the seasons in a transition of a seed traveling places while being carried by the wind. The only "character" in this book was a tiny seed, and although seeds do not have feelings it used excellent personification to describe the stages a seed goes through when transitioning into a plant. The illustrations went along well with the text of the story and makes it easy for children to follow along as a teacher or parent reads the text to them. This book was mainly an informational text presented in a creative way so the main message was to explain how a tiny seed could travel through all the obstacles and make it through to be one of the tallest plants people have ever seen. It presents an underlying message to children about facing hardships and then coming out okay in the end.

In my opinion, this is...

In my opinion, this is a fabulous book. Eric Carle's illustrations of this book enhance it. Each page of illustration really shows the reader exactly what he is talking about in the text. This is very helpful to students who have trouble with reading. The illustrations can help them decipher what the text is talking about. For example, on one page the story is explaining how the seeds fly over the ocean and one falls into the water and drowns while the others keep on moving with the wind. This is illustrated beautifully in the story. The language is very descriptive. Although the illustrations are there to help a reader, the writing is so descriptive, if it was being read to a listener, they would have no trouble imagining what is being said. For example, "The flower has lost almost all of its petals. It swayts and bends away from the wind. But the wind grows stronger and shakes the flower. Once more the wind shakes the flower, and this time the flower's seed pod opens." This part of the story describes exaclty what is happening to the flower. The reader or listener can picture it in their minds. The plot of this story is very interesting. It explains the moral of the story as well. The smallest seed was the only seed that survived the long journey of blooming into the biggest flower ever imaginable. It was interesting to read how the other seeds did not make it because they landed on a mountain top, or got eaten by a bird. Just because the seed was small, it does not mean that it does not have the most potential. Just like us humans, size, shape, color, race, etc. should not determine how we view people. Our expectations of others should be high for each and every person.
