Publisher Description

  • "An enchanting vision." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

From the team behind the gorgeous What Will Hatch? comes a companion book all about seeds and the plants that grow from them--and featuring four pull-out gatefolds.

Seeds can be big or small, round or pointy, and all sorts of colors. They can become flowers, trees, fruits, or vegetables, and they sprout all times of year, during spring, summer, fall, and winter.

But all seeds have one thing in common--inside each is a new plant life waiting to emerge. What kind of plant will bloom? Wait and see what will grow!

Including four gorgeous pull-out gatefolds, this lyrical and stunningly illustrated book includes fun facts about starting a garden.

Review

"A mighty oak of a book . . . This lyrical picture book about the wonders of seeds will charm readers with its fun gatefolds and softly appealing illustrations of animals and plants." - starred review, Shelf Awareness

"Quietly lovely . . . Ghahremani's art is playful yet refined, and the soft textures of the wood she paints on bring warmth to vignettes of dandelion-laden meadows, pumpkins stalked by a fox, and frosty winter fields. Well-integrated gatefolds add drama to some scenes . . . An enchanting vision of how strikingly different seeds and plants can be." - starred review, Publishers Weekly

"This bucolic companion to Ward's What Will Hatch? captures the magic and excitement of planting a garden and waiting for it to bloom . . . Four gatefold illustrations will appeal to children's sense of wonder, and informative back matter instructs aspiring gardeners on when and how to sow the showcased seeds." - starred review, School Library Journal

"Rich with organic material, this choice is as warm and patient as the ground that nurtures the seeds to new life." - Kirkus Reviews

"Featuring rounded, simplified botanical forms, the book's decorative gouache paintings are playful and satisfying . . . A satisfying, interactive picture book for reading aloud." - Booklist

"An elegant interactive design and serene illustrations." - Publishers Weekly on WHAT WILL HATCH?

"Ghahremani's picture-book debut features incredible hand-lettering and muted, textured tones . . . [T]hey work well in this quiet nature story . . . Science for the very young is done best through joyous learning; education will certainly hatch from these pages." - Kirkus Reviews on WHAT WILL HATCH?
