Book Reviews (5)
Seeds and Trees has a symbolic theme, when I say this I mean that the trees are a symbol for kindness and mean things people say or do. All though some younger kids may not get the message that Seeds and Trees is trying to tell you I fell like this book is enjoyable for kids of all ages even if they don't know the theme, because they might be thinking about how cool the prince is or the trees. But this book is great for 4th and up. It shows how kindness is always the way to go, because you get a good tree when you're kind and a bad tree when you're negative. Over all I totally recommend Seeds and Trees.
A prince who cared for trees wow, nice book he is a tree lover. he even has a friend who also cares for trees it made me feel happy. It is so cool that it makes the world so clean. The prince is the king of nature.
Its a good book! Its about a boy who takes bad and good seeds (words) that he plants and waters so they grow with him, and the seeds turn into trees, but he finds a friend and she helps him cut out all the bad seeds (thoughts) so theres only good ones.
