A little boy and girl find a seed, and decide to keep it safe. They play with it but it doesn’t grow. What must they do to make it grow, and what will happen when it flowers and dies?

Companion title to I SAW A BEE.

 

Praise for this book:

'This simple look at a sunflower life cycle and the seasons is again pitch perfect for the very young. Rob’s rhythmic text is memorable while his illustrations show just how worthwhile and rewarding continuing contact with the natural world can be. A small piece of brilliance.' Red Reading Hub

'I love the retro feel of the delicately illustrated cloth cover of this book. Perfect to get children interested in gardening and introduce them to the plant life cycle and seasons. Part picture book, part early nature book, it's a lovely way to show young children the cycle of the seasons and the wonders of nature.' Parents in Touch

'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.' Lovereading4kids, Andrea Reece

'Colourful, contemporary illustrations and a short, rhythmic story help to convey the magic of nature, the joys of friendship, and the fun of shared activities, making this the perfect book for home, school and nursery.' Lancashire Evening Post

'There is a gentle environmental theme... Ramsden’s spare text echoes the inscrutable seed, while the juxtaposition of image and text provides a finely paced visual representation of patience.' The Irish Times
