Schoolchildren learn that seeds can be dispersed by wind, water, animals, or the bursting of a pod. In Three Lost Seeds, these forces are a subtle metaphor for the hardships faced by displaced children. Each of the three seeds in this story?a cherry stone in Iran, an acacia seed in Australia, and a lotus seed in China? survives a difficult journey through flood, fire, or drought, then sprouts (in the case of the lotus seed, a hundred years later) and ultimately flourishes.
Stephie Morton?s verse and Nicole Wong?s art make a picture book to treasure. Backmatter features about seed-inspired art projects and the natural history of seeds complete the book.
