Ten Seeds

Ruth Brown. Alfred A. Knopf, $9.95 (24pp) ISBN 978-0-375-80697-1

Learning Made Fun ""Ten seeds,/ one ant./ Nine seeds,/ one pigeon."" As the countdown begins in Ten Seeds by Ruth Brown, children watch the seeds (then seedlings, shoots and plants) disappear from various encounters. The last seed survives, turning into a sunflower and then dropping 10 seeds so the cycle will begin again. Printed on sturdy stock, the book's full-spread art gives readers an up-close look at gardening. ( May)
