The Seedling that Didn’t Want to Grow

Britta Teckentrup

Hailed by Publishers Weekly as “delicate, complex, extravagant, beautiful and strong,” Teckentrup’s inviting and softly coloured illustrations provide the perfect backdrop for this moving tale about being unique while subtly teaching kids about the life cycle of plants. It’s early spring and below the earth’s surface seeds are just starting to sprout. All except for one seedling, who isn’t quite ready. As most of the seeds transform into strong flowers, they block out the sun from the one left behind. But the little seedling persists, twisting and turning until it finds its own place to grow and blossom.
