Little Seed: A Life by Callie Grant

"Little Seed: A Life", a Graham Blanchard Publishing praise book, follows the life cycle of a seed. Following the progression of a seed from when it is first dropped into the ground on to its transformation through the seasons to a full grown plant and ending with the plant producing seeds of its own, this book can open a discussion with a child about how God changes and uses all of His creation through growth.

God's provision for growth is another story that can easily be another discussion that evolves naturally while reading this book to your preschooler. I love the bold, bright illustrations by Suzanne Etienne and believe they will fully engage a child's attention and initiate conversations about all they observe. The simple sentence structure is also just enough to hold a young child's attention and can stand alone or their own or be a stepping stone to a richer discussion about what is happening in the story, or to help an older child see this as an illustration of spiritual growth. This board book is a terrific size for older preschoolers to hold and "read" on their own. I highly recommend this book.

I received this book free of charge from Shelton Interactive in exchange for my honest review.
