Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Sprout, Seed, Sprout! is the story of a young boy who, like many children, has decided to plant a seed--in this case, an avocado seed. And as with so many things in life, the process takes a good while longer than anticipated ... A meditation on patience and perseverance, combined with humour (and an utterly charming cat), this title has lots of patterning and repetition and will make a great choice for storytime."--

    Featuring simply rendered prose and colorful line drawings in a pastel palette, this follows a young boy's experiences growing a plant from an avocado pit. After his father removes the pit from the fruit, the boy preps it with "One glass of water. Two careful hands. Three pointy toothpicks." Soon, it develops roots, but despite watering it, putting it on a sunny windowsill, even singing to it, the seed doesn't grow any further, leading to "Three frustrated words: I . . . give . . . up!" Eventually, to his delight, shoots appear and he transplants it outdoors. And, as boy grows, so does the plant. Dunklee's spare, descriptive text lends well to read-alouds, and Sookocheff's cartoon illustrations depict components of the boy's project, as well as the boy's ubiquitous, supportive cat, who sometimes lends a helping paw. While the details are specific to the avocado project, children will likely appreciate the sympathetic and encouraging approach to coping with "Waiting. Waiting. Waiting." An accessible gardening title that may inspire children to try something similar. Grades K-2. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
