It Starts with a Seed

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Jennie Webber. Spare rhyming text describes a sycamore tree's life, starting with a seed drifting to the ground. Roots, shoots, and leaves grow to become a home to animals; the cycle continues when the tree sends seeds into the breeze. Realistic line and watercolor illustrations show each stage in gorgeous detail. Gatefold back matter includes the poem in full and some very basic facts.
