Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

The bestselling book about the power of one kind act from Caldecott Medal and Coretta Scott King Award winner Kadir Nelson.

Timeless and delectable.--School Library Journal

If you plant a carrot seed . . . a carrot will grow.

If you plant a cabbage seed . . . cabbage will grow.

But what happens if you plant a seed of kindness . . . or selfishness?

With spare text and breathtaking oil paintings, If You Plant a Seed demonstrates not only the process of planting and growing for young children but also how a seed of kindness can bear sweet fruit.

Kadir Nelson's acclaimed books include The Undefeated, winner of the Caldecott Medal as the most distinguished picture book of the year, Heart and Soul: The Story of America and African Americans, and Moses: When Harriet Tubman Led Her People to Freedom.

   A very special book for young children.
I order and read a lot of children's books to find ones that are suitable to support a curriculum of mindfulness, loving kindness, gratitude and connection to others, she said. In all those books, I come across a few real jewels, he said. The story is simply and clearly told, and the age level works for young children, too. It doesn't try to say everything, but to say one thing very well. I've read all the books, but this is by far the best. Thanks to all the sponsors: Contribute to charity Kadir Nelso. I hope you continue to produce other books with the same clear purpose and beauty, Mrs Clinton said.
   Board book is the whole book!
We borrowed the hardcover copy of this book from our local library and loved it so much I had to buy a copy, and since my kids insist on taking books to bed but are too young to treat paper pages well, I was thrilled to see that it came in a board book. I was a little wary because so many board books are condensed or abridged of the original picture book, and I bought it if it wasn't the whole book. It's the same as the picture book, just board-book-sized. I hope this review helps another parent down the road.
   Perfect for all ages
This book is by far the best. The message is clear and the illustrations are so vibrant that all children can understand the simple meaning of the letter 'T'. I have used it with children ages 3 and up and with their DHH friends, and with littles with limited English or even limited receptive language. It's a splendid book. It's a MUST have. I recommend this book to anyone who reads it. We especially loved the picture of the three birds looking straight at the reader with their heads tilted.
   Gorgeous book and lovely message
This book is absolutely gorgeous, said Frey. I've always loved Kadir Nelson's work. The rabbit and the mouse grow a garden, but don't want to share when the birds ask for food. They yell at each other and then fight, ruining much of the food. Both the rabbit and the mouse learn that fighting isn't the answer. You must be kind to one another and share with others, he said. Then mouse shares his food with one of the birds, and they see this, too, that they can't bully others into giving. In a generous gesture of uncharacteristic compassion, the boys start the garden over. The birds drop the seeds, and all together they care for the garden and wait for it to grow. The animals rejoice at the fully grown garden, and remembering their lesson, they share with all the animals, even those who didn't help. This is a beautiful book with a beautiful and important message, Levine said.
   Caution: Violent imagery
I bought this book without even knowing what I was getting into. What a story, said Blair, "and the illustrations are just too scary." I plan to throw this book away, regrettably, rather than donate it to charity. I don't believe that everything needs to be sugarcoated for kids, but I think matter-of-fact explanations can be helpful, she said. But I found this to be needlessly violent in the way it was portrayed. I hope this helps other people considering this book for their children.
   Beautiful board book
A sweet message from the creator of the "Choose" book series. A nice book for young children, full of simple words and wonderful drawings, Mr. O'Neill said. Grandson picks this book for lap time reading.
   Beautiful book, important message
Each page of this story is exceptional, the illustrations by Brian Stokes are exceptional. The actual story is sparse, but it's all that matters, Crowe said. The illustrations are doing the heavy lifting, the children's book publisher said. The book has been a hit with both my preschooler and elementary schooler. There are also some products that can be used by adults who just want to remind themselves to be kind.
   Beautiful illustrations but problematic story
He's an absolutely great writer, and I own several of his books. Paul Sullivan is an amazing illustrator and does not disappoint with the illustrations in this book. Mr. Kennedy said: "I am disappointed in the story. Good morning, share and give of yourself to others. The consequences are severe: Not sharing could land you in trouble with the law. Instead, we should be teaching kids to share because we see others in need and believe that we benefit as a society when we help each other up, he said.
   My daughter *loves* this book
My 3 year old absolutely loves it. We originally found it at the library, but she was upset every time we had to return it, so we bought it. The writer of the letter says the message is simple but the message is good- it is better to share than hoard things for yourself. The pictures are beautiful and the book is large, too.
   Wonderfully done!
It's a beautiful reminder to help children be mindful of what they plant.
