(...) The story helps us recall the things we have long forgotten, while introducing kids, for the first time, with a seed’s journey. Throughout the journey, along with the seed, one also comes across various elements like earth, wind, rain, time, the moon, the sun, the birds and a tree. And comes to realize, once again, how incredibly close we are to all these things yet how distant we feel. The book’s pure and simple style sets a beautiful way in which to describe this journey to our kids.
The illustrations, as is the story, are quite powerful as well. They are done in a style which resembles water-color and also engravings. It feels as if hand-painted specially for you. The unclean, ephemeral style reminds me of nature and this ever-flowing connection between everything that surrounds us.
On a final note, each book comes with a handful of Kavilca Wheat (Kars region) seeds. As I gather, it is one of the oldest dating seeds in Turkey. Such a delicate thought….
