If You Plant a Seed

With very few words and gorgeous paintings, Kadir Nelson tells a beautiful story of mediumsharing and bounty. A bunny and a mouse plant a small garden, and are all set to eat the produce when the birds show up. A fight ends only by sharing, and when the birds share back, a garden bigger and more lush than ever is made.

If You Plant a Seed shows us the value of compassion and working together.
