Charlie, a white rabbit, finds some packets of seeds in his garden. The packets tell him that the seeds will grow into trees of various shapes.  He plants them and has to wait while they grow.  Eventually, with the help of some sunshine and some rain, the seeds grow into beautiful trees, but Charlie is disappointed as his favourite shape is the star, and that tree is just a circle.  Again, he waits and waits until with time and patience, the star tree takes shape.  Charlie has a snail friend as a helper - not always a brilliant idea in a garden, but in this case they seem to pull it off! Subject = Shapes - patience. This book has key vocabulary in the center pages.
