Overview

Watch seeds grow right before your eyes! Readers can follow the fun clues and guess what delicious fruits will grow from each seed. With a lift of each foldout flap, kids can watch the seeds take root in the soil, sprout from the ground, and finally, make the fruits we love to eat! A tomato seed grows ripe tomatoes, an orange seed grows juicy oranges, a pea seed grows crunchy pea pods, a pepper seed grows shiny bell peppers, and blueberry seeds grow plump blueberries.

Each cardstock page of this book folds out into a large 14" x 14" inch page that reveals a child enjoying the healthy and delicious fruits of the seeds.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
"Tomato seeds, / tomato seeds, / how do / you grow?" On the opposite page a sprinkling of tomato seeds hovers on a white field; a bright orange arrow encourages readers to open the vertical gatefold, revealing a cross-section of a young tomato plant growing out of the ground. Opening the horizontal gatefold reveals a 13.5" X 15" photo of a little boy holding a ripe tomato. The pattern repeats with blueberries, peppers, peas and oranges, each held by a different child, culminating in a spread of all the children and the concluding phrase, "We love seeds and their delicious fruits!" This botanically correct statement may baffle many children (and their parents), but they're likely to be so wowed they won't care. The engineering necessarily makes this a little on the flimsy side, but it's still pretty snazzy. (Board book. 1-4)

Tilde studied photography at the Rhode Island School of Design, but her journey in photography began much earlier. As a toddler of a professional photographer, she was often stagged in tutus or with a finger in the nose. Growing older, she helped lug equipment to places like Tijuana, where her father was basing a children’s book. Then in her teens she completed several photojournalism assignments abroad of her own, through children’s organizations such as Compassion and other orphan relief agencies. My First Ballet Class is her third children’s book to photograph. Her own experiences as a child model have taught her that you can’t capture the magic of childhood unless the subjects are free to truly be themselves.
