If You Plant a Seed written and illustrated by Kadir Nelson (2015)
When Bunny and Mouse plant a carrot seed, a tomato seed, and a cabbage seed, a carrot plant, a tomato plant, and a cabbage plant grow, making them very happy. They soon learn though that if they are selfish with their carrots, tomatoes, and cabbages, there will be a heap of trouble. But if they share their carrots, tomatoes, and cabbages, there will be more fruits of kindness for all to share.
A story with a message… kindness is best!
Start a kindness garden with your kiddos. Begin by planting seeds of kindness (do a kind deed). For each seed of kindness add a flower to your garden (sticker chart). The full chart of sticker flowers is the reward… do not go out and get another reward for having a full chart.
Begin lessons with easy plants before gardening.
