BCB Plant the Tiny Seed



In this playful companion to the popular Tap the Magic Tree and Touch the Brightest Star, Christie Matheson once again masterfully shows the true interactivity of a page turn by following a tiny seed as it is planted, watered, and grows into a beautiful flower. School Library Journal calls Plant the Tiny Seed a “top choice for collections serving the youngest readers.” Now available as a board book, perfect for tiny hands. 

Just as she did in Tap the Magic Tree and Touch the Brightest Star, Christie Matheson combines the wonder of the natural world with the interactivity of reading. Children engage with the book as they wiggle their fingers to water the seeds, clap to make the sun shine after rain, and shoo away a hungry snail.

Beautiful collage and watercolor art follows the seed through its entire life cycle as it grows into a zinnia in a garden full of buzzing bees, curious hummingbirds, and colorful butterflies. Appropriate for even the youngest child, Plant the Tiny Seed is never the same book twice—no matter how many times you read it!

A page about how to grow your own zinnias and animals that love gardens is included at the end.
