Planting Seeds

Nancy Elizabeth Wallace
Board Book
For infants to age 3
Marshall Cavendish , 2010   ISBN: 978-0761456438

It is a blue sky day, and one brown bunny is digging in the soil, getting it ready for planting. Then two brown bunnies kneel on the ground, and they plant carrot seeds in the soft earth. Three brown bunnies use colorful watering cans to give the little green sprouts a drink, and when weeds start to push their way through the soil, four brown bunnies set about pulling the weeds up.

In this delightful board book, Nancy Elizabeth Wallace uses her charming felt and fabric pictures to show children how a garden is created. In addition, she presents her narrative in such a way that the title is also a counting book. The back page includes an illustration that children can use to practice counting to ten.

This title is one in a collection of books that Nancy Elizabeth Wallace has created. Each one features her delightful rabbit characters.
