My weekly read this week is What’s This? a seed’s story by Caroline Mackford and published by the brilliant Barefoot Books.
On a cold winter morning a girl finds, and plants, a seed. Then she and her friends – a small bird and a marmalade cat – tend and water it. In spring the seed starts to grow. At last in summer a beautiful sunflower appears. In the autumn she discovers that the seeds of her plant can be used so that everyone in her class has a sunflower next year.
“And when the next summer came every child had a beautiful smiling sunflower!”
A great book to stimulate some seed collecting and planting.
