A little boy and girl find a seed, and decide to keep it safe. They play with it but it doesn't grow. What must they do to make it grow? When it flowers and dies, they find it has left them lots of new seeds to plant.
Perfect to get children interested in gardening and introduce them to the plant life cycle and seasons. We Found a Seed is a simple, joyously delivered lesson in how to plant a seed and make it grow, demonstrating the cycle of life: a seed growing into a plant which dies off but gives more seeds. It also explores the friendship of two children playing together while involved in the same activity. The short and rhythmic text is perfect to learn by heart and recite as a poem; deceptively simple with the repeatability factor of the best Ruth Brown and Eric Carle.
