I came across this picture book by chance and I am grateful for this wonderful encounter. To me, a picture book, no matter how good the written content is, also has to have a very strong visual component. If You Hold a Seed kept my eyes drawn to every detail in the illustrations and I was savouring the beauty of the artist’s vision and how well it manifested in simple, yet warm and touching images. We need more picture books like this! – where pictures really do the narration. As for the story itself – it’s full of hope, patience, believing, and succeeding. I give a solid ‘A’ to Elly MacKay for writing and illustrating this gorgeous children’s book. (Submitted by Mariya)
A tree and a boy grow together through the years with patience and care. Lovely title.
A book to teach children to learn the nature view of a plant from birth to growing. The final outcome is positive and has a lovely impact. This is one of the books I would pick up again for a re-read for my children
Nice story :)
This is good store I love the good
The story is so nice and I liked the pictures--except for the little boy! He looks like a dead baby or a creepy doll for the first few pages. I couldn't quite get past that.
This may be about the life cycle of a tree, but it also is also about a boy that grows up in its company. Very simple, but informative.
