Miss Maple’s Seedsby Eliza Wheeler
Every summer, Miss Maple gathers lost seeds that haven’t yet found a home in which to blossom. She takes them on field trips to explore places to grow. In her cozy maple tree house, she keeps them safe and warm. Then, come spring, she sends them off into the wide world to ride the winds and tides and find roots of their own, and grow into the magnificent plants they’re destined to become.
Award-winning illustrator Eliza Wheeler’s sumptuous paintings float and soar, from sun-washed landscapes to deep glowing night scenes. Her tender story celebrates the potential found in each seed—since even the grandest tree and most brilliant flower had to grow from the smallest of seeds.
