Stay, Little Seed
This book follows a seed that isn’t quite ready to leave his mother tree. He asks to stay for a while, and eventually it become too hard for her to let him go. Trouble ensues when a magpie knocks the little seed off and the tree does not know where her little seed has gone. Will the tree ever get to see her little seed again?
The writing in this book is a little long. It seems to be more geared for an older child, but ironically my younger child liked the story better than my older child. The story gave me a strong feeling of attachment towards the seed. I was impressed how much sorrow I had when the seed gets knocked off the tree.
The illustration style is unique. Some color, but mostly a tan fill to the pictures with colorful lines. My kids tend to gravitate towards more colorful pictures, so I was interested to see what they had to say. My six-year-old son said he did not like the book, and my three-year-old daughter liked the trees seeing each other at the end. I think it might be a difference between a boy and a girl’s perspective.
