Foreman, Michael The Seeds of Friendship. PICTURE BOOK. Candlewick, 2015. $17.
Adam came from a world full of jungle and animals, but now he lives in a gray, cold city. First in winter, he makes friends through creative snow building. Then, at school, a little plot of garden becomes, little by little, an ever-increasing world of color.
Foreman’s book is a little slice of hopeful and a look at a small way to change a concrete jungle into a prettier world. While I think Foreman takes the dream to the farthest extreme, it is a sweet dream that is realized every day in a community garden or a rooftop plot of land.
