A toddler puts a seed into the ground. It grows into a big, beautiful sunflower! By summer’s end, the flower dies. He cries and cries. Why did it die?

Then he discovers that the sunflower left him a present ~ many, many seeds. He, and his animal friends, happily eat them up. All but one…And that, he puts in the ground.

The up-beat vibe of the SUNFLOWER song sends a positive message about loss. Life goes on!



Little Big Books.net are musical e-books for toddlers! Every story celebrates their delight in life, passion for discovery, and brave baby steps toward mastery of their world. Artist Anne Baird, and composer/musicians, Allison McCready and Cary Beare adore toddlers, and teamed up to produce Little Big’s first e-books for them. There are five ebooks in the collection. The first two books, POTTY PARTY and MOON MOON, can be purchased and downloaded right now through iBooks (Apple), Kindle (Amazon), Kobo, or Nook (Barnes & Noble.) Anne Baird is an award-winning, self-taught artist. A former teacher and school administrator, she’s the author/illustrator of 11 children’s books, published by William Morrow and Simon & Schuster, and inspired by the antics of her children, grandchildren, and many students. Her new creative partnership with musicians Allison McCready and Cary Beare, has enhanced her delight in creating joyous books for the very young! The Little Big Books collection, of which Potty Party is the first, is the result of their fruitful collaboration. Allison McCready and Cary Beare are a highly successful singer/songwriting team from Los Angeles, with years of professional credits under their belt. They perform together as Joopiter Moon. Their latest musical endeavor has been writing children’s music. Potty Party, created at the request of Cary’s sister, who begged for a song to help her potty train her daughter, is the first of the five-book Little Big Books collection. Moon Moon, Blankie, Sunflower and Teeny Green will soon follow. MOON MOON, BLANKIE, SUNFLOWER and TEENY GREEN will soon be available. In the meantime, take a look at their previews on the Preview Page! Purchase POTTY PARTY here! At present, it is the only Little Big book configured to allow it to download to mobile devices as well as computers. It can be purchased and downloaded right now through iBooks (Apple), Kindle (Amazon), Kobo, or Nook (Barnes & Noble.) The Nook version is a read-aloud book only, as their website is not configured to accept our musical videos at this time.

"A sweet story about life, discovered by a boy who plants a sunflower, watches it die, and plants its seed again. A great job of making every word count. Illustrations are vibrant. Multimedia features: linked video and Read Again. Solid, strong. Nice job."
