This book is a bit different from most of Eric Carle's other books--the text is longer, and it's geared toward elementary school-aged readers rather than toddlers or preschoolers--but it's no less visually appealing or fun. The story of the tiny seed that takes an incredible journey is a great metaphor for life with notes of perseverance and dedication. The illustrations, in Eric Carle's typical bold and bright papercut style, are engaging and impressive.
