Product Description

If you plant a carrot seed, a carrot will grow. If you plant a lettuce seed, lettuce will grow. But what happens if you plant a seed of kindness? Or selfishness?

This is a resonant, gently humorous story about the power of our actions, and the rewards of compassion and generosity.

Hardcover; 40 pages; Ages 4-8
