If You Plant a Seed by Kadir Nelson

If You Plant a Seed

If You Plant a Seed by Kadir Nelson is exquisite and motivating.  This weekend, we’ll make a special trip to the garden store to pick up seeds.  After this harsh winter, we’re looking forward to digging in the dirt.

Kadir Nelson’s illustrations are stunning.  Don’t miss the page without any words and 5 birds.  Their expressions are priceless.  My coworker claims, “It makes me think about what my teenagers look like when I ask them to do something.”  Sadly, they look a little like the look ML gave me last night after she said, “Don’t talk to me.”  She’s only eight, I’m not ready for teenage looks.
