Carried from its flower home by the autumn wind, a tiny seed travels around the world. Its journey is perilous, and readers learn the fate of fellow seeds: they can fall into the ocean, get burned by the sun, or be eaten by birds. Even seeds that land and begin to grow into plants are in danger of being stepped on or picked. Against the odds, however, this tiny seed survives to grow into a grand, beautiful flower, ready, in turn, to send its seeds out on the wind.

Brightly colored collage pictures bring the narrative to life, inviting young readers to share the tiny seed’s exciting journey. This engaging picture book also provides basic information on the seasons and the life cycle of plants, making it a good introduction to beginning science projects and an enticement to children to further explore the natural world.
