When a tiny boy plants a carrot seed, everyone tells him it won't develop. So he waters his seed, and pulls the weeds, and he waits. But when you are extremely young, there are some things that you just know, and the little boy knows that one day a carrot will come up.

Ruth Krauss, author of A Hole Is to Dig, has crafted a story virtually Zen-like in its simplicity. The image that resonates most strongly in this minimalist tale could possibly be the unfaltering faith from the mild-mannered tiny boy. (Ages 4 to 8) Krauss's husband, Crockett Johnson (creator of Harold as well because the Purple Crayon) , illustrated The Carrot Seed, and whilst the little boy is rendered with uncomplicated lines, all of his hope, confidence, and serenity shine through. A little boy plants a carrot seed and waits patiently, tending to it carefully, while everyone around him insists that"it won't come up."His conviction is steadfast, however, and sure enough, a carrot worthy of first prize at any state fair springs forth from the earth. Young readers learn that standing your ground inside the face of opposition and doubt can typically cause twice the reward expected (even thrice the reward, if judging by the girth of this carrot ).
