"Each of the three seeds in this story--a cherry seed in the MIddle East, an acacia seed in Australia, and a lotus seed in Asia--survives a difficult journey through flood, fire, or drought, then sprouts (in the case of the lotus seed, a hundred years later) and flourishes. To author Stephie Morton, nature's powerful forces are a metaphor for the hardships faced by displaced children. Kids, like seeds, thrive when given a chance. Stephie's verses and Nicole Wong's art make a picture book to treasure"--Jacket.
