"A mighty oak of a book . . . This lyrical picture book about the wonders of seeds will charm readers with its fun gatefolds and softly appealing illustrations of animals and plants." - starred review, Shelf Awareness

"Quietly lovely . . . Ghahremani's art is playful yet refined, and the soft textures of the wood she paints on bring warmth to vignettes of dandelion-laden meadows, pumpkins stalked by a fox, and frosty winter fields. Well-integrated gatefolds add drama to some scenes . . . An enchanting vision of how strikingly different seeds and plants can be." - starred review, Publishers Weekly

"This bucolic companion to Ward's What Will Hatch? captures the magic and excitement of planting a garden and waiting for it to bloom . . . Four gatefold illustrations will appeal to children's sense of wonder, and informative back matter instructs aspiring gardeners on when and how to sow the showcased seeds." - starred review, School Library Journal

"Rich with organic material, this choice is as warm and patient as the ground that nurtures the seeds to new life." - Kirkus Reviews
