It Starts With a Seed


How can something so small turn into a tree, which is such an incredibly BIG thing to be?’ We watch and wonder as a seed settles and transforms ‘to a root, to a shoot, to a few shiny leaves.

Through sequenced, rhyming factual text, and glorious, accurate, detailed pen and ink images, Laura Knowles and Jennie Webber have created a wonderful book. ‘It Starts With a Seed‘ is an homage to the sheer wonder and chance of a windblown seed becoming a tree. In their compilation we realise how something so insignificant might become a titan offering home and succour to our natural world.

‘It Starts With a Seed‘ is recommended for home readers and classroom nature tables. It is a ‘forever’ title to be respected, learned with and loved.
