How much effort the little seed expends in trying to become big! When exhaustion takes over and despair threatens to grip him, the little seed finds the true source of growth, and the value of surrender and trust.
Brought to life by water colour and marker sketches, the seed is an endearing character whose struggles many can appreciate.
A read-it-again story for preschoolers and primary students, and an early reader for 6- to 8-year-olds, The Seed That Wanted to Grow is sure to become a favourite of children and parents alike.
Linda Prickett has been writing rhyming poetry since childhood, delighting friends and family with personalized birthday cards and anniversary wishes, and presenting Bible truths in fresh ways. This is her first attempt at fiction, though she hopes the little seed will become ‘real’ to her young readers. Besides a love of words, Linda has a passion for numbers and for teaching. She has edited several book-length manuscripts while pursuing an accounting designation and teaching English as a Second Language. Linda and her husband Gary have five (mostly) grown children and a cat named Fynn.
