What's that wedged in a crack in the ground, small and hard and purple-brown? A bean seed! Watch as the seed develops roots... then leaves! And what's that on the leaf? An egg! The egg hatches a caterpillar. The caterpillar eats the leaves and gets bigger and bigger until it forms a chrysalis. Meanwhile, the plant develops flowers, then bean pods. Side by side, plant and insect grow... and grow... and grow throughout the year, until they come full circle.

Using simple, clear language and beautiful illustrations, this gentle story is the perfect introduction to growing for very young readers.
