Book Reviews:

"Easy, well-metered rhyme, a repeating and expanding refrain, and words and musical notation on the rear endpapers combine to create a new storytime and music-circle favorite. A sweet paean to the nurturing power of love." - Kirkus Reviews

"Told from the perspective of a tiny seed, the story follows a young bunny who finds the seed on an autumn day and takes it home to nurture it with soil, water, light, and patience. As it sprouts, the bunny is thrilled to watch it grow “a hundred feet tall.” Along the way, he shares his experience with family and friends and draws his neighborhood together to appreciate the process and its ultimate result." - Booklist

Guess How Much I Love You meets Someday in this gentle read-aloud picture book that shows us that with just the right amount of care and support, even the smallest of seeds can grow to stand one hundred feet tall.

Thanks for the love that you’ve shown me
Right now I’m so very small
But with water and light
I will keep gaining height
And then one day I’ll stand at a hundred feet tall

Hundred Feet Tall is a tender ode to the power of unconditional, immutable love. Because no matter how small you are now, with patience and persistence, with encouragement and devotion, you, too, will someday grow strong.
