Little Seed: A Life
Little Seed journeys from the beak of a bird to the path of a squirrel to reach fresh soil and a new life. Follow the miraculous life cycle of a simple seed and experience the four seasons with vibrant art depicting growth inside the earth and above it.
In Graham Blanchard’s Learn, Absorb & Praise™ collection, this is a Praise book, which celebrates the soul-pleasing wonders of God that children experience every day. A natural response to this God-filled world is worship, gratitude and awe for him and his glory, while young hearts grow for him.
“…a wonderfully affirming story that teaches children that God watches over all of His creation and gives it everything it needs to be safe and to blossom. The beautiful, bright illustrations will delight parents and children alike.” – Create With Joy Blog
“Rich illustrations depict the beauty each season has to offer, as well as the roles of some vibrantly represented animals. Both accessible and expressive, word choices such as “drifted,” “cozy,” “split open,” and “to catch the hot sun” help cultivate a love of nature in children.” – Foreword Reviews, Spring 2014
“I love that God is woven into this story as well, reminding our little ones how amazing God is and how he impacts life around us all the time” – The Cole Clan Blog
“I’m excited to use “Little Seed: A Life” during my children’s church class when spring comes. I’d love to show the kids how seeds work in soil just as Christ dwells in our hearts, helping us to grow fruits of the Spirit. I teach 4-5 year olds so this is just at the perfect age for exploration.” – S Club 4 Blog
