Product Details


Lemniscates considers seeds, both as tiny biological powerhouses and metaphors for human potential.
—Kirkus Reviews

The illustrations showcase the narrative theme in a powerful way and provide a sense of movement. ­Lemniscates’s story highlights the expansive possibilities contained within both literal and figurative seeds. A good purchase for all ­libraries.
—School Library Journal

The text is straightforward and accessible: "Pumpkin seeds bring pumpkins: kindness seeds bring kindness." Never preachy, the overall tone is just right and complements Lemniscates’ two previous offerings on birds and trees. This will make a great read-aloud, whether for introducing spring flowers or initiating conversations about friendship.

Crisp, colorful mixed-media illustrations keep pace with the text, showing moments such as a tiny seed germinating into a resplendent orchid and gardening children resolving their differences. Lemniscates’s canny tale holds an appealing message: “Seeds can only bring what they carry./ Pumpkin seeds bring pumpkins; kindness seeds bring kindness.// You have lots of seeds, and you get to decide…/ which ones to help grow.”
—Publishers Weekly
