Planting Seeds is a wonderful concept boardbook based on the premise of a rabbits’ garden from planting to harvest. An increasing number of rabbits plant, tend, and harvest their garden in steps one through ten, one number for each double page spread, and the book is successful as a counting book. However, with the premise of the garden there is also much more to the book than counting; it can be read over and over again with a focus on colors, different types of small animals, even family members. Despite its concept richness, the book has a very clean design, and the illustrations are clear and soothing, not busy. Each page has minimal text and the use of patterned language makes for a predictable read that young children will enjoy. The rabbit family, cut out from origami and other found papers, are the main focus of each illustration, but there are plenty of other objects to count on each page: clouds, birds, and garden tools also make an appearance, making for varied, colorful pages. Because of the illustration technique, some readers may miss highly detailed faces, but overall this does not detract from the satisfying conclusion. As a bonus, the back page includes a counting chart using carrots. Highly recommended. ( )

ittle Kid Reaction: My son really liked this book. He liked picking out objects on the page that he could recognize and identify. We seemed to take turns picking out this book to read. I was not surprised that he liked this book. I was surprised at how much in the book he was able to recognize and respond to (more than I had expected).

Big Kid Reaction: I LOVED this book. I loved that it was a sweet story of a family working together, that it worked on counting, and that is portrayed the progression of how a garden grows! The illustrations are sweet and simple.
