From celebrated children's book creators Ruth Krauss and Crockett Johnson comes the beloved classic story The Carrot Seed.

When a little boy plants a carrot seed, everyone tells him it won't grow. But when you are very young, there are some things that you just know, and the little boy knows that one day a carrot will come up. So he waters his seed, and pulls the weeds, and he waits...

This beautifully simple classic teaches the patience and technique of planting a seed and helping it grow. First published in 1945 and never out of print, the timeless combination of Ruth Krauss's simple text and Crockett Johnson's eloquent illustrations creates a triumphant and deeply satisfying story for readers of all ages.

I love this book. I am a big fan of Crocket Johnson's Harold and the Purple Crayon books. This one is much simpler and shorter, but has a great moral to it. My daughter likes the book. It is quite short and simple though, so definitely more appropriate for younger children.

This is an adorable book with the sweetest story. I don't think I read this one as a kid but the drawings are done by the same illustrator as Harold and The Purple Crayon, which I loved as a kid. This book has simple graphics and bold colors, great for little ones. My 18 month old loves it and asks to read it many times a day.

Contains an excellent message that speaks to the subconscious that all desires are possible if you hold the faith and ignore or dispel doubts of others. I first heard of this book from a Neville Goddard channel and gift it to friends who have babies or toddlers. Also this book is short for the caretaker who may be tired lol

This was used as illustration in a sermon & I can see why because it shows a child's trust and faith. Parents should read with child for teaching lesson.

I added some carrot seeds, soil and pot and this old standard
is a great gift and experience for all children.
I also remember the song.

Wonderful book for kiddies. One of my favorites to give as a gift for a newborn. Sweet story of a little boy planting a seed and caring for it, even though everyone keeps saying it won't come up. Then the carrot comes up, just as the little boy knew it would. Great fun when a little one, after hearing the book over and over, will pretend to "read" the book back to you by looking at the pictures on each page. Highly recommend!

In his essay "Ruth Krauss and Me," author Maurice Sendak says "that perfect picture book, The Carrot Seed, the granddaddy of all picture books in America, a small revolution of a book that permanently transformed the face of children's book publishing. The Carrot Seed, with not a word or a picture out of place, is dramatic, vivid, precise, concise in every detail. It springs fresh from the real world of children."
This is a timeless classic that has been known and loved by children and parents for years.
A young boy is told by his parents, competition and his big brother that his carrot will not grow. After a long time of pulling weeds, watering and patience the carrot finally grows, and it is huge.
The author Ruth Krauss was born in 1901 is also the author of A Hole Is To Dig; I'll Be You and You Be Me; Charlotte and the White Horse; and many other childrens classics.
I love the description on the back of the book: "When you are very young, there are some things that you just know..."

This book is as sweet as can be. I remember being a child & I just knew something was going to work out somehow. Unfortunately for me, most of the time the "seeds" of my childhood didn't yield such wonderful results as this boy's, but I love the message of hope and perseverance in this darling book.
