It Starts With a Seed (Hardback)

Laura Knowles

3 years +

The winner of the Margaret Mallett Award for Children's Non-Fiction, It Starts with a Seed explores how a tiny sycamore seed transforms into a sapling and then a tree - with branches and roots filling the pages.

An evocative read, as the tree grows it is joined by well-loved creatures including squirrels, rabbits, butterflies and owls who call the woodland home.

With factual elements, this beautifully presented book (gold-embossed front cover, gatefolds, textured paper and a specialised etching technique) will touch any child with its simple but enchanting message of life and growth.

It starts with a seed -

This gorgeous book is simply enchanting!

I ordered this for my 5-year-old son and we couldn't wait to dig into it as soon as it arrived. The illustrations are beautiful and the gentle text carries you through the book like a gentle breeze!

He loved watching the roots grow in size as the pages turned.

His verdict, awesome! Mine, simply stunning! A must for a child's bookcase!
