Seeds and Trees by Brandon Walden is a super cute illustrated story.
I absolutely love the main title page – the flowers, thorns and bird are absolutely stunning. The art style felt unique yet beautiful, which is something I crave in picture books. I love seeing different art styles that connect with the story.
An added touch was the letter from the author at the beginning. As a child, I probably would have skipped by it and not cared in the least, but as an adult I like reading into the mind of the author. Seeing the reasons behind the story is always a little pleasure of mine!
The story itself worked well with the art style. The contrasting There was a bit of a rhyming scheme at certain points of the story, but it didn’t feel super forced.
The theme and story itself tells a really important tale about positive vibes. I definitely think this book would be a great read for parents to bond with their children or for a school to pick up. I could see young classrooms picking this story apart and telling great tales!
Five out of five stars!
