Book Review: The Carrot Seed

Rating: ★★★★☆

This is a very simple story about a young boy’s confidence that the seed he plants will grow.  He persists in caring for it, even though his family expresses skepticism, and his perseverance is met with success.  This is a nice short read-aloud for young children who are just beginning to grasp the structure of stories, or those who are just moving into reading on their own.  If using as an easy reader, though, I don’t recommend the board book format which older children will identify as babyish.
