  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 December #1
    Drawing on his songwriting skills, Scheuer writes an endearing story about love and cultivation in the context of a new sibling. Told from the perspective of a tiny seed, the story follows a young bunny who finds the seed on an autumn day and takes it home to nurture it with soil, water, light, and patience. As it sprouts, the bunny is thrilled to watch it grow "a hundred feet tall." Along the way, he shares his experience with family and friends and draws his neighborhood together to appreciate the process and its ultimate result. Williams' warm, playful illustrations in a loose, cartoon style focus on the rabbit family and nicely tie the message of patience and caring to both the plant and the bunny's soon-to-be sibling. Though the singsong lines don't always read aloud smoothly, the sheet music for the song is included at the end. Pair this sweet sibling story with Jamie L. B. Deenihan's When Grandma Gives You a Lemon Tree (2019) and Toni Yuly's The Whole Wide World and Me (2019). Preschool-Kindergarten. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
