SPRING BOOKS FOR KIDS

THE TINY SEED
The Tiny Seed book study sunflower life cycle companion activities unit grades K-1
 Eric Carle's book The Tiny Seed is a fantastic book for spring! It takes us along on a seed's journey as it blows off of a plant and gets planted itself, growing into its own seed-bearing flower. I love how Carle describes what may happen to seeds (they may get eaten by birds, dried up by the sun) and what happens to plants (people may pick them, step on them).
