Overview

The bestselling book about the power of one kind act from Caldecott Honor 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.

What happens if you plant seed? What about if you plant a seed of hate? Or what if you plant a seed of kindness? How can what you do effect others and how others view you. You reap what you sow.

This is cute and sweet but not memorable. The illustrations are beautiful and the sentiment is good.
