The Growing Story Summary


The Growing Story by Ruth Krauss

A classically beautiful picture book from Helen Oxenbury and Ruth Krauss. Share the universal experience of growing up and discover the rhythms of the seasons in this wonderfully timeless story.

A little boy, some chicks and a puppy live on a farm. They see the first signs of spring growing in the fields and the little boy asks his mother if he and the puppy will grow too. Of course you will, she assures him, and as spring turns to summer he sees his dog growing taller and the chicks become chickens. But as the seasons change and everything grows around him, the little boy feels like he has stayed the same. Can he really be growing too?

This charming story will enchant younger readers and is perfect for sharing aloud. Beautifully presented as an illustrated hardback, it will make the perfect gift for all little children wondering if they're growing too.

About Ruth Krauss


Ruth Krauss, a member of the experimental Writer's Laboratory at the Bank Street School in New York City in the 1940s, imaginatively used humour and invented words to create some of the very first books for children that highlighted the child's inner life. She collaborated with some of the greatest illustrators in children's literature, including Maurice Sendak, who described her as a `giant' in children's literature, and her husband, Crockett Johnson.

Helen Oxenbury grew up in Ipswich, England, and has always loved nothing more than drawing. She studied costume design and then worked on stage sets for theatre, film and TV. After marrying John Burningham, another eminent illustrator, she began illustrating children's books and has gone on to win several prestigious awards and wide-spread critical acclaim for her work.
