Description

This is the bilingual (English/Spanish) version of A Seed Was Planted. There is also a vocabulary page at the end of the book. A wonderful cycle of giving begins when a seed is planted. Pieces and sprouts of walnut tree are passed along from one person to that person's friend and on that that friend's neighbor and on and on and on. The circle of giving creates a new crop of trees (supporting the idea of reforestation) and instills traditional values of sharing and caring. It also brings about a spirit of hope and goodwill to the givers. Love grows along with the saplings in the beautifully generous world. An inspiration and a timely lesson for children, adults and whole communities.
