About The Book

Tiny Bess is in for a surprise when she chooses the biggest seed she can find for her garden in this colorful and inspiring picture book by Ellen Howard.

Bess is the smallest child in all of her classroom. So when it comes time to choose seeds to plant in the garden for a school project, Bess is extra careful to choose one very large seed.
