The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle is an informational book that was published in 1991. This book demonstrates the life cycle of a flower, from a small seed to a blossomed, mature flower. I would use this book to promote text to world connections by reading the book and then planting a flower seed and we would watch it grow as the flower in the book does.
Things like this make me want to abandon the expected Halloween theme and do an Eric Carle theme instead.
