LoveReading View on We Found a Seed

Two young friends find a seed, and what an adventure follows.  At first they play with it, but of course it doesn’t grow.  Then they listen to it, plant it and wait as the seasons come and go until, in the summer sunshine, there stands a glorious sunflower.  That’s not the end of the story though: the flower dies, as flowers do, but it leaves them more seeds.  This is a beautiful and very clever illustration of the cycle of life, all wrapped up in a story that will be fun to read over and over again.  The rhythmic text is great to read aloud and there are opportunities for children to copy the actions of its stars on every page as they dance, sing, get blown by the wind, and grow up like the sunflower.
