Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In seldom more than 10 words per page, this deceptively simple tale--accompanied by straightforward figures against white backgrounds--tells of a boy's quiet triumph over his two older siblings. Ages 3-6. (Mar.)
School Library Journal
07/01/2015
Baby/Toddler—This classic tale of three siblings—one who is little (Titch), one a bit bigger (Mary), and one a lot bigger (Peter)—sweetly explores the family dynamics of birth order and the challenges and satisfaction of reaching developmental stages. Titch's persistent attempts to follow in his siblings' footsteps as they play, make music, and build are rewarded when the older kids dig some dirt and fill a flowerpot. Titch plants a tiny seed, and the threesome watch it grow and grow. A lovely reassuring metaphor for the youngest among us.

I have been reading this story to children for years.(teacher).It is well liked by all children and often chosen for story time. It appeals to all children who have siblings and children love the surprise of a small child overlooked in many ways gaining wonderfully when his tiny seed transforms into an amazing plant.
