Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375806970, Hardcover)"Ten seeds–one ant. Nine seeds–one pigeon. Eight seeds–one mouse. . . .”
Watch the countdown as seeds and plants disappear until just one beautiful flower remains.
Keep your eyes on the garden as ten seeds are planted, but only one beautiful flower blooms. Thanks to one ant, one mouse, one pigeon, and lots of other creatures (making a total of nine to be exact!), seeds go missing, and plants get eaten. All except the last, which grows a majestic flower and then drops ten seeds so the cycle can begin anew.
In this fresh new take on counting concepts, Ruth Brown uses her lush artwork to showcase the life of a garden as she counts down from ten to one. Ten Seeds, with its light humor and spare text, is a perfect bridge for toddlers and preschoolers ready to step up to more sophisticated stories.

A lesson in simple subtraction is combined with the growth of plants. 10 seeds are planted but, thanks to one ant, one mouse, one pigeon and several other creatures, seeds go missing and plants get eaten, except one.
