I Am the Seed That Grew the Tree: A Nature Poem for Every Day of the Year | National Trust Book Illustrated by Frann Preston-Gannon Description
Taking its title, I Am the Seed That Grew the Tree, from the first line of the much-beloved poem 'Windsong' by Judith Nicholls, this National Trust book of poetry includes rhymes, riddles and verse for every day of the year. That includes leap years too, as there are 366 poems in this hardback book's pages.
Elegantly presented with the whimsy and rich colours of Frann Preston-Gannon's illustrations, I Am the Seed That Grew the Tree: A Nature Poem for Every Day of the Year features scenes of animals, nature and the changing of the seasons to highlight the pretty poetry scattered across each page.
This National Trust Book is a wonderful way to encourage children into creativity, literacy and curiosity about nature. Not only that, but it takes its wonderful words from a whole host of influential writers from across the ages. Expect poems by Robert Frost, Thomas Hardy and Emily Dickinson to proudly rub shoulders with words of wisdom from William Shakespeare, Emily Bronte and William Wordsworth in this wonderful hardback book.
