Barbara Reid’s one-of-a kind art brings the young reader’s world to life in this engaging exploration of nature!
A seed, an acorn, tiny eggs in a pond or under a leaf: what do they all share? They are all living things — like you!... What’s growing in your neighbourhood?
Children will love to watch nature’s rhythms unfold:
- A tadpole hatches from an egg.
- A caterpillar turns into a monarch butterfly.
- An acorn becomes a mighty oak.
- A glorious sunflower grows from a tiny seed.
Simple text and Barb’s signature Plasticine images are a perfect fit with STEM themes for the younger set. Be inspired to head outdoors and see the magical transformations.
