    In the small, small pond
    by Denise Fleming

    It's Springtime and a bright green frog leaps out of the tall, tall grass and lands in a small, small pond. Splash!
    Tadpoles and minnows scatter.
    Summer passes, turtles drowse in the sun and dragonflies hover in the air above.
    Fall arrives as ducks paddle by and the colors change.
    Finally, snow falls. The little frog burrows deep into the pond and waits for spring to come again.

    Have you seen my duckling?
    by Nancy Tafury

    A duckling is missing! Mother Duck sails frantically around the pond, with the rest of her brood behind her.
    But none of the pond residents has seen the little duckling, not bird, not turtle, not beaver, not fish.

    Clever readers can see that duckling isn't lost at all--just adventuring, and never far away.

    The tiny seed
    by Eric Carle

    In autumn, a strong wind blows flower seeds high in the air and carries them far across the land.
    One by one, many of the seeds are lost -- burned by the sun, fallen into the ocean, eaten by a bird... But some survive the long winter and, come spring, sprout into plants, facing new dangers -- trampled by playing children, picked as a gift for a friend... Soon only the tiniest seed remains, growing into a giant flower and, when autumn returns, sending its own seeds into the wind to start the process over again.

    Eric Carle's eloquent text and brilliant collages turn the simple life cycle of a plant into an exciting story, a nature lesson, and an inspiring message of the importance of perseverance.
