Ages: 4 – 8 years old
As a youth that was once labelled a ‘bad seed’, I understand first-hand the power of changing ones’ mindset and deciding to be a better, happier person.
Like the bad seed in this wonderfully illustrated story, I made small changes that made it easier to be a happier person. It didn’t happen overnight, but with a lot of patience, it did happen.
Told through the eyes of a chatty sunflower seed, this book is a great resource for teaching children that a ‘bad seed’ can indeed decide to be ‘not so bad.’
From a New York Times Best Selling Author, The Bad Seed proves that positive change is possible for every one of us….
The Bad Seed is a baaaaaaaad seed! How bad?
Well, he has a bad temper, bad manners and a bad attitude. He cuts in line, stares at everyone and never listens.
However, he wasn’t always this way.
He began life as one happy seed living with his large family on a sunflower. In a comical series of traumatic events that involve the seed being harvested for a snack, and then spit out only to land in a wad of chewing gum …. he is transformed into a bad seed.
But you know what? He doesn’t want to be bad or angry anymore, this bad seed wants to be happy.
He makes some small changes, is kind to himself as well as others and along the way, shows us through the power of will that positive change is possible for every one of us.
The book leaves us with the bad seed well on the way to being a good seed. He isn’t quite there, but we know he will get there and that by using his will, it is possible.
Written by New York Times Best Selling Author, Jory John, The Bad Seed is perfect for both younger and older readers.
Pete Oswald, who has worked on many popular films including ParaNorman, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and the Angry Birds Movie illustrates this book boldly and humorously.
It can be hard for children to understand that change is possible for each and every one of us. The Bad Seed is a useful resource for teaching children that everyone can change, even the ‘bad seeds’, should they choose to.
The Bad Seed is ideal for any family who wants to teach their children about the power of positivity and change ….
