Carle, Eric. The Tiny Seed. New York: Aladdin Paperbacks, 1987.
Genre - Fiction
This book is about a seed that is smaller than all the other seeds it flies with. It is because of its small size that it is able to survive everything it is in danger. Eventually the seed survives and grows into the largest flower ever where people come from all over to see. Eventually the flower begins to die and pass on its own seeds to start the cycle over.
This story is touches on life, death, and the cycle of how things work. It reassures children that even though one may seem inferior or less favored among the rest, there is still potential for that person to rise above the rest and even become the best. The story is also fast paced which helps kids stay interested in the story line. I would mainly use this book to help introduce life cycles such as life and death and how nature works.
