The Tiny Seed By Eric Carle

My almost 5 year old daughter has developed a liking to Eric Carle’s books. The minute she spots his name, she wants to read it. We were in a book shop couple of months back, when the kids got to choose one book each. I did not surprise me one bit to see The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle in her hands. I was surprised to see the Indian reprint, easing on the rupee, however :)

This book just like any other Eric Carle’s book is simply amazing. Beautiful, large and bold illustrations, simple words, repetitive sentences. It is the tale of a tiny seed’s journey through the seasons and how it survives amidst the larger, more powerful ones and finally makes it’s mark by blooming into a giant flower.

The author introduces different seasons, keeping the moral and the story line intact. The book starts with the tale of this tiny seed in autumn, how the tiny seed survives the winter, then spring and then summer. Autumn is back again, and it completes one cycle of seasons. It also show cases the life cycle of seeds, when the tiny seed that grows into a large flower, sheds it petals and then its seed, and the seed gets blown away by the wind, repeating the cycle all over again.

Depicts beautifully that size does not matter. A seed though tiny can sail along with the larger stronger one’s in its own way and can make it bigger than the rest, slowly and steadily.
