Thursday Giveaway: The Tiny Seed

Image from Eric Carle's The Tiny Seed. Postcards $0.75

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! 1. Kimberly Bloodgood 2. Cindy Gadaire 3. Natasha Garrepy 4. Cindy McGregor 5. Connie Harbison 6. Christine M. 7. Shafia 8. Natasha Garrepy 9. Emily 10. Julie Congratulations!

This is one of my favorite Eric Carle books! My second class and I are completing this school year with Mr. Carle's books and author study! Mr. Carle is and has always been my favorite "picture writer"!

What a great Eric Carle Book, The Tiny Seed, would be to add to our children's room at the library. His books are already one of the most popular books checked out!! I also have a friend that is having a baby, and I have already picked out 2 of his books, plus the hungry caterpillar teether for her...this would make a nice addition!! Good luck everyone! :))

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.

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

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 :)

Fingers crossed for me :)

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.
