Discover wonders of growing plants through story of Sarah the Sunflower Seed'

SEDGWICK Author Evangeline Lincoln Wollmar was inspired to share the joys and satisfaction of rural farming what she has been doing for the past 13 years. Her recently published book detailing the story of 'Sarah the Sunflower Seed' (published by AuthorHouse) shows readers the life cycle of a sunflower plant and the celebration of nature and seasons on a farm.

This tale is primarily the story of the life cycle of a sunflower plant as seen through the eyes of one of the seeds. It is set on a small family farm in Maine and introduces children to vocabulary such as compost, heirloom seeds, mulch, grubs, mason bees and more. The author utilizes poetry to be the voice of the seed followed by the text that tells its delightful story.

The love for nature and satisfaction of growing things from the earth is the central message the author wants readers to have and develop within themselves. Added bonus is the array of vivid illustrations that give life to an entertaining text keen to express the beauty of tilling the earth and seeing life grow out of it.

'I would love to encourage a child to want to grow something of their own. To plant a seed, see it grow, then save the seeds from the plant for the next year,' Wollmar shares. 'I would hope it might encourage more children to want to grow their own food or beautiful flowers.'
