Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
New picture books look to captivate open minds. Elaine Greenstein offers two cyclical tales for youngest readers. One Little Seed understatedly depicts a seed's growth from initial planting ("One little seed/ Dropped in a hole") through its development and eventual blossoming as a bright sunflower. Folk-influenced, full-bleed watercolors balance facing pages where brief lyrical phrases and small circular insets float on white space. One Little Lamb applies this formula to a rural setting where a lamb's wool is sheared, carded and spun; a girl uses the wool to knit "two little mittens I wear on my hands," which she wears when visiting the flock. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Start with one little seed. Gradually apply thirty-three words. And, voila, you can walk your own budding gardener through the life cycle of a sunflower. Greenstein lays out her twenty-four pages with minimal text on the left page and gentle drawings on the right. Watch the seed grow in its garden habitat with worms, butterflies, rabbits, and the like showing up throughout the growing season. Witness each stage along the way: seed, root, sprout, bud, bloom, seed. We see the need for water and sunshine, too. Greenstein's illustrations are simple, colorful paintings focused on each specific step in the process. The book's small (approximately 8 inch x 8 inch) format is friendly to tiny hands. This is a simple and peaceful introduction to the world of botany for those early readers who still have feet in their PJs. 2004, Viking, Ages 1 to 4.
—Chris Gill
School Library Journal
PreS-In these companion books, readers follow the progression of a lamb's wool being transformed into a pair of mittens and a seed growing into a sunflower. Greenstein's softly hued watercolors are enhanced by some scratchboard techniques. The texts appear in large type with spot art sharing each verso and facing a full-page painting. However, the tenses, the subjects of the verbs, and the points of view shift erratically from page to page without any punctuation, making the narratives more like captions than stories unfolding. "One little seed/dropped in a hole/watered and loved/roots unfurl/sprout uncurls/stretch in rain/weed and watch/bud bursts out/sun shines bright/blooms blossom/one little seed is picked." Sweet books with appealing art and flawed texts.-Bina Williams, Bridgeport Public Library, CT Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
