The Carrot Seed
Celebrate 75 years of Ruth Krauss and Crockett Johnson’s bestselling classic with a moving foreword from award-winning picture book creator Kevin Henkes.
When a little boy plants a carrot seed, everyone tells him it won’t grow. But when you are very young, there are some things that you just know, and the little boy knows that one day a carrot will come up. So he waters his seed, and pulls the weeds, and he waits. . . .
First published in 1945 and never out of print, this timeless combination of Ruth Krauss’s simple text and Crockett Johnson’s eloquent illustrations creates a triumphant and deeply satisfying story for readers of all ages.
