A Seed is Sleepy, by Dianna Hutts Aston.

Illus. by Sylvia Long.

Sleepy, secretive, fruitful, naked, and adventurous are among the adjectives applied to a variety of seeds in cursive text while delicate watercolor illustrations depict a gorgeous selection of small and large seeds, their life cycles, and the plants they grow into.

Grades 1-3

This book is just as attractive as last year's An Egg is Quiet by the same author-illustrator team. The watercolor drawings alone make this a book worthy of consideration. The many aspects of seeds are simply and appealingly presented.

This book is a gem. Our science teacher has used it with several different grade levels and loves its simplicity and lovely illustrations.
