See an excerpt

Barbara Reid’s one-of-a kind art brings an engaging exploration of nature to life!

Readers young and old will enjoy this introduction to the marvels of the natural world: watching a tadpole hatch from an egg, a caterpillar turn into a butterfly, an acorn become a mighty oak and a glorious sunflower grow from a tiny seed!

Barbara Reid's love of the outside was celebrated in her acclaimed picture books Picture a Tree and Picture the Sky, and in Watch It Grow, she blends simple text with her signature Plasticine illustrations to awaken curiosity and encourage learning.

The book includes graphic illustrations of the four backyard life cycles.
