ABOUT THE BOOK
A boy finds a little seed and plants it. What will grow out of it, he wonders—a tree, a butterfly, a mountain? Manjari Chakravarti’s evocative pictures soar with the child’s imagination, capturing the hope and anticipation and the small dose of reality.
- The bright colours and details in the pictures ought to be attractive for young children.
- The idea behind the book is interesting, but it doesn’t quite deliver.
- The rhyming and flow are uneven, making it a bit awkward to read out.
- Despite the 6-plus recommended age range by the publishers, this might be better suited to much younger children.
An interesting idea, but the book doesn’t exactly hit the mark.
