Review: A Seed is Sleepy

A Seed is Sleepy by by Dianna Hutts Aston
2007, Chronicle Books, 40 pages, hardcover

Reviewed by Ana Braga-Henebry, M.A.

Sometimes a book comes along that is truly outstanding! The acknowledgments page alone of this new book by Dianna Hutts is truly impressive! The text is captivating, telling stories that fascinate young and old readers about all sorts of seeds. I bet many an amateur botanist will have never heard about some of these! The illustrations--just gorgeous--complement this high quality picture book. Our children are learning Botany this semester at Homeschool Co-op and this volume is an excellent enrichment. We have the authors' other one as well--An Egg Is Quiet--also excellent!

Available from your favorite bookseller.
