Gorgeous illustrations coupled with lovely rhyming text. Watch a single sycamore seed grow into a massive tree that provides a home for a wide variety of birds, bugs, and all sorts of wildlife.
Take a journey through the seasons and years as we follow the seed's transformation 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, enchanting message of life and growth.
