A Seed is Sleepy

A Seed is Sleepy by Dianna Holts Aston, Illus. by Sylvia Long, 2007

Written by the same author of "An Egg is Quiet" which I also did a blog entry on here. It is very factual and shows the beauty and mystery of creation. I love the layout of both of these books and the beautiful illustrations.

I'm sure you'll find that these books are often found in preschool and elementary school classrooms as they are a great teaching resource.

"It lies there, tucked inside its flower, on its cone, or beneath the soil. Snug. Still. A seed is secretive. It does not reveal itself too quickly. Most seeds sleep through a season or two, waiting for the warmer temperatures of spring. But some take their time. Ten years might pass before the bright red-orange seed of the Texas mountain laurel shows its purple blooms."
