Little green seed tells the story of a seed that is carried by the wind from the forest to the city, where it falls right into the crack of a street. The crack is repaired, and the seed is trapped there. But the impetus of life propels her, and she begins to grow underground, imprisoned but supported by insects like pill bugs, worms and spiders that push her so that she can cross the asphalt and touch the sky with its small new leaves.
The texts in this book are rhymed, which gives an exquisite musicality to reading, with a deep poetic sense that accounts for the love of nature, trees and the cycle of life.
Illustrations bring light and meaning of their own, also complementing the expressions of this little seed that begins to grow in front of our eyes. We see in his gaze the desperation to go out into the world, the overwhelmed feeling of being trapped, and also the happiness and joy of knowing in company.
