The Carrot Seed

I love The Carrot Seed by Ruth Krauss. This children's classic recently celebrated it's 60th year in print.

It's the story of a little boy who plants a carrot seed and waits patiently for it to grow. While he waits, everyone around him tells him it won't grow. One after another, others give him this negative opinion about his carrot seed. But the little boy keeps tending the seed and waiting. He believes it will grow. And it does in a BIG way!

This book is about more than a carrot seed growing into a giant carrot. It's about a boy who believes in himself and his project, growing a carrot, despite everyone around him telling him it won't work.

With very simple text and clean art, this little book is a wonderful addition to any youngster's library.
