Item Description...
"Ten seeds--one ant. Nine seeds--one pigeon. Eight seeds--one mouse. . . ."
Watch the countdown as seeds and plants disappear until just one beautiful flower remains.

Keep your eyes on the garden as ten seeds are planted, but only one beautiful flower blooms. Thanks to one ant, one mouse, one pigeon, and lots of other creatures (making a total of nine to be exact!), seeds go missing, and plants get eaten. All except the last, which grows a majestic flower and then drops ten seeds so the cycle can begin anew.

In this fresh new take on counting concepts, Ruth Brown uses her lush artwork to showcase the life of a garden as she counts down from ten to one. Ten Seeds, with its light humor and spare text, is a perfect bridge for toddlers and preschoolers ready to step up to more sophisticated stories.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Review of Ruth Brown's "Ten Seeds"  Sep 15, 2005
I have to admit to being one of those mom's who likes books that not only entertain but also teach something. Who wouldn't want to find a book that has great art, a story, AND that teaches math (and in this case science) as well--wahoo!

In this light, `Ten Seeds' provides alot. First the artwork is very nice, and the story, while short, is cute. As indicated by the other reviewers, a boy plants 10 seeds and one by one their numbers are reduced. This is a great way to introduce subtraction and to make it more `concrete'. (This also works with M&M's by the way.)

But in addition to this the artwork introduces some science. First you can see how the seeds grow, first putting out a single root that splits, then roots multiply, and the tiny plant sends out the first leaves that seek the sun. These false leaves give way to real leaves and then a flower which blooms (sunflower), grows old, leaving the boy with more seeds to plant next year.

And lest we forget, there are animals to talk about. The seeds/seedlings are reduced principally by living organisms such as an ant, a pigeon, a mouse, a slug, a mole, a cat, a puppy, greenflies. Some of these are not the usual animals we see in kids books. And in addition there are other creatures that can be seen beneath (and above) the ground such as earthworms, bees, ladybug, and other unidentifiable squirmies.

Five Stars. The artwork is very nice and the pages are more substantial than in many books for this age range. The plot is a little simple, but there is lots of message: science, math: the seasons and how things grow.
Detailed and amazing illustrations  Aug 26, 2005
This book is a piece of artwork you will enjoy as much as your child. I am blown away by the talent shown in these illustrations.
Ten Seeds by Ruth Brown  Jan 26, 2003
We LOVE this book! I've been looking all over for a good book that portrays the growth of a seed and this book achieves that beautifully. My kids (ages 4 and 2) want it read to them over and over again. It is also a great counting backwards (or subtraction) book.
Ten seeds  Jul 15, 2001
Very cute and sturdy. A youbg boy plants ten seeds, which, one by one, are eaten are destroyed in some manner. All except for one seed that grows into a glorious sunflower, which produces exactly ten seeds. A definite summer hit for the young set.
