Picture Book Round-Up The Seed Who was Afraid to be Planted by Anthony DeStefano and Erwin Madrid
Welcome to October Picture Book Round-Up. Today I am reviewing a new release PB, The Seed Who was Afraid to be Planted by Anthony DeStefano, illustrated by Erwin Madrid. It came out just yesterday! Oct. 7th.
The illustrations are lush and vivid. I really enjoyed looking at all the seeds and animals and highly recommend it for the artwork alone. The story is done in rhyme, however, the cadence doesn't always ring true and I got thrown out of the story at times. It really is hard to do a rhyming book that works. The plot though pulls through and the story is at the end related to Bible verses of seeds becoming plants. I didn't know it had a religious twist until the end, and it actually made the story more real to me. I liked it. I'm giving it 4 stars!
