Description



About the Book



Despite the negativity of his family, a little boy continues to care for his carrot seed until it produces a carrot.



Book Synopsis



Celebrate 75 years of The Carrot Seed with a new foreword from Caldecott Honor picture book creator Kevin Henkes!

When a little boy plants a carrot seed, everyone tells him it won't grow. But when you are very young, there are some things that you just know, and the little boy knows that one day a carrot will come up. So he waters his seed, and pulls the weeds, and he waits...

This beloved classic celebrates patience, determination, and believing in yourself. First published in 1945 and never out of print, the timeless combination of Ruth Krauss's simple text and Crockett Johnson's eloquent illustrations creates a triumphant and deeply satisfying story for readers of all ages.



From the Back Cover



The Carrot Seed, having to do with a little boy and his personal carrot seed, is a very refreshing book all around. It will be completely understandable to the young, quite unanswerable to the young, quite unanswerable to adults, and deeply satisfying to both.



Review Quotes




"In this cunningly paced fable about patience and standing one's ground, a little boy plants a carrot seed, weeds and waters the spot, and waits for something to happen. A parade of nay-sayers drop by to tell the boy, 'I'm afraid it won't come up.' The big moment is a stupendous surprise...the little hero's homegrown triumph." -- "Parenting"
