It Starts With A Seed (Paperback)

£8.99
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

In gentle rhyme, It Starts with a Seed evocatively explores the growth of a tiny sycamore seed.



Taking a journey through the seasons and years, we follow the seed as it transforms from a seedling to a sapling, then a young tree, until it becomes a large tree with its branches and roots filling the page. As the tree grows, it is joined by well-loved woodland creatures - squirrels and rabbits, butterflies and owls - who make it their home. Beautiful and evocative, It Starts with a Seed is a factual story that will touch children with its simple but enchanting message of life and growth.



Beautifully presented, It Starts with a Seed has a gold embossed front cover, gatefolds, textured paper and specialised etching technique, hand made by the illustrator throughout.



It Starts with a Seed was the winner of the inaugural Margaret Mallett Award for Children's Non-Fiction.
