Hooray, it’s spring! Flowers are blooming, trees are budding, and I’ve already started planting seeds inside for my garden this summer. In celebration of Earth Day tomorrow and the beginning of the gardening season here in the Northeast, we’re giving away one of our very favorite books about flowers: The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle.

With Eric Carle’s delightful and colorful paper collage, a tiny seed travels through the four seasons, blowing in the wind across fields, oceans and mountains until growing into a not-so-tiny flower in the spring.

We have TEN copies of the small mini edition of this wonderful book to giveaway to TEN lucky readers! All you have to do to enter to win a copy is leave a comment below before Friday, April 22nd  at 12:00 pm EST. After that we’ll close the comments and announce the lucky winners. Good luck and happy gardening!

Comments now closed.

Congratulations to our TEN randomly chosen winners! Hopefully these books will bring a little spring to your day. We’ll be in touch shortly with each of you to get shipping information. Happy Earth Day!

    Love that book, and a small one will be perfect for my grand-daughter Anna

    This book would be a wonderful “spring” addition to my daughters’ beautiful Eric Carle library!

    Well I just got my first teaching job in a Preschool classroom! I would love to share this story! :)

    My 3 year old LOVES all the Eric Carle books, and this is one we don’t have in our collection! We can’t wait to bring her to the museum soon.

  6. Cindy Gadaire says:

    I met Eric Carle years ago and I have been completely enchanted by his books ever since! I run a small homebased childcare and share his books daily with my children. This book would be a wonderful addition to our library.

  7. Christine says:

    Fingers crossed for me :)

  8. Mellisa Sharrock says:

    would love to win this :)

  9. This is one of Eric’s best books. Not only is the artwork beautiful – which we expect – but the story line helps children understand that things don’t always work out the way we hoped. I need to get a copy for more of my grandchildren :)

  10. Kimberly Bloodgood says:

    I read this story at least a couple times a year to my class. It really helps them understand the life cycle of plants and how things grow and are connected.

  11. Maxine says:

    I can’t wait to plant seeds with my little one in a few weeks. This would be the perfect companion!

  12. Ilene Gavenman says:

    What a fun way to celebrate Earth Day and the joys of spring!It’s so nice of you to have these special give aways! I enjoy sharing Eric Carle’s wonderful books with our patrons at the library and have my own collection of his works which I am now happily able to share with my darling granddaughters!

  13. Destiny Lawyer says:

    I own this in my classroom and for my own children at home, but would love to give this away to my friend who is due to have a baby any day now!

  14. Sue Brumbaugh says:

    I love everything Carle! Have been planting and painting flowers during Spring Break from my elementary school job….getting ready to share The Carle with my kiddos when we go back!

    Good Morning from the Pacific Northwest.

    We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Spring here in Anchorage, Alaska. We still have piles of old snow, but the dirt in my greenhouse is almost warm.

    The librarian, music teacher and myself, the art teacher have been working together for 2 weeks on a unit based on Eric Carle’s The Tiny Seed in anticipation for Spring. While reading my Facebook entries this morning, I noticed your offer. Fancy that, timing is perfect.

    I still remember when the National Art Educators met in Boston and a bunch of us visited your museum. I still have fond memories of our visit. Your bookstore rocks! Barb
