The Wonder of Seeds
Wow -Lemniscates just became my new favorite author! This is an incredibly beautiful book with simple but color-rich illustrations of seeds, their flowers and fruit. But the beauty of the books doesn't stop there! Using seeds as a metaphor, author Lemniscates empowers children to decide how to use their seeds in their hearts.
"You have lots of seeds, and you get to decide which ones to plant and which ones to help grow. Seeds have whole worlds inside them, just like you."
Ideas for Making it Real
Making seed paper or a seed card is the perfect activity to make this story real for a child. Nature's Seed offers a good overview if you've never tackled this kind of craft. And NASA's Climate Kids has a useful step-by-step Seed Paper Guide. Happy crafting!
