Written and Illustrated by Carme Lemniscates

This started as an informative book about plant and flower seeds. About how they are carried by the wind or by insects or birds. About how they reproduce and grow.
Then the book switches focus. It turns to how seeds of anger grow anger, kindness grows kindness, etc. About how you sow the seeds of the emotions you carry. It was an unexpected twist.

Overall it wasn’t what was expected but I do believe it is an interesting book for younger readers that may help them realize they have a responsibility to plant seeds in the earth and themselves that will grow to make everything and everyone around us more beautiful.
