Little Seed

Illustrated by Benson Shum

Meet a little seed with a very big heart in this imaginative board book about how to hug and love our very big world.

Little Seed has a very big wish: figure out how to hug the whole world.

So with a loving nudge from Mama Earth, Little Seed sets out on an adventure to meet and learn different ways to hug and love each new friend. But how do you hug a panda who’s as soft as a cloud? And how do you hug a whale who’s as big as a mountain?

This adorable board book is perfect for teaching little ones how and why it’s important to find different ways to show our love. A sweet reminder that we all have the power to bring more love and light into the world, this loving story proves that all we need to do is take it one hug at time, just like Little Seed.
