How does a miniscule seed become a flower? The book The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle explains and illustrates this process extremely well, and serves as the inspiration for this song.
As the verses in the song describe a seed’s journey to blossoming into a beautiful flower, you will hear a short instrumental interlude between each step. The musical space allows an opportunity for movement reflecting the action taking place.
This song is part of my collaboration with Irina Kazakevic, creator of the Monthly Kids Yoga Unit. Each month I work with her to create a song that is tied to her kids yoga unit, and this is the song for April. She has specified yoga movements to accompany each step in the seed to flower journey.
Although this song stands alone beautifully, when paired with the yoga movements, it provides an integrated experience for children. Learn more about the Monthly Kids Yoga Unit here.
