Sprout, Seed, Sprout! by Annika Dunklee chronicles the process of growing an avocado tree. A young boy carefully prepares the pit and patiently waits. At last, there are roots and the seed is moved to a pot. More waiting ensues and then hooray! A tree is born! His faithful cat stands by during the frustrating times when it seems nothing will happen. The tale is easy to follow for young readers and the illustrations are winsome.
