Kadir Nelson is an author-illustrator that has grown to be dear to my heart! He is an artist that brings the beauty of his talent to his children's literature. His paintings look like photographs. I think that you will love his work.

If You Plant a Seed is another amazing book by this author. Mouse and Rabbit plant a garden, and once the harvest is plentiful they are faced with a choice. Plant seeds of kindness and share? Don't share our bounty and deal with the possible consequences? Which did these friends choose? I hope that you will read the book with your students and find out. : )
