If You Plant A Seed

If You Plant A Seed

by Kadir Nelson Illustrated by Kadir Nelson
Acclaimed author Kadir Nelson presents a resonant, gently humorous story about the power of even the smallest acts and the rewards of compassion and generosity. With spare text and breathtaking oil paintings, the story and pictures demonstrate for young children not only the process of planting and growing but also how a seed of kindness can bear sweet fruit.
