here once was a seed
Who lived in a drawer
In a room of a mansion
By a beautiful shoreï¿½ï¿½ï¿½
So begins this lovely retelling of Jesus' parable of the seed for children ages 3 and up.
The Seed who Was Afraid to be Planted introduces children to a tiny seed content to remain in his safe, cozy drawer with the other seeds. Suddenly, a day comes when the gardener who lives in the mansion takes the seed from his drawer and plants him in the ground. Faced with his biggest fear, the seed undergoes a miraculous experience that changes his life forever.
Beautifully illustrated and written in simple but delightful verse, The Seed who was Afraid to be Planted reminds us all that no matter how small or scared we may be, God has great plans for us.
