Little Seed lives in a seed packet in the farmer's shed. He likes it there. He watches the farmer take seeds often and Little Seed decides when it is his turn, he does not want to go. Little Fox is scared of most things. During a storm, he runs into the farmer's shed for shelter. Fox and Seed become friends. The day finally comes when seed must leave. The farmer plants the seed and promises it will be okay because he is watching over the seed. Fox also watches over the seed until something amazing happens.

The illustrations are colorful with interesting texture and are enjoyable to look at.

First, my difficulty with this story (then I will explain the 4 stars). In the story, the farmer puts Little Seed in a messy dark hole, covers him with the dirt and he becomes scared and lonely. This bothered me for a couple of reasons. First, it is scary watching the farmer put a child in what seems to be a dangerous situation. Secondly, I don't believe this is how God (the farmer) works. I do not believe He purposely puts us in "deep, dark and messy places" for our good. I believe God works with the choices he gave us the free will to make. I think the author could have worked this part of the story a little differently to navigate around this issue.

Now to the reason for four stars. Even though the above issue was present, and the story was a bit too wordy, the writing and the illustrating were excellent. The story was a good one and the author kept using reassuring words throughout the story. The farmer was watching over the seed and the fox. It was going to be okay. The friends lifted each other up. This story is an excellent spring board for a discussion you can have with your child about fear. It is advertized for ages 4-8 which is an excellent age range.
