What would the world look like if we all planted seeds, nourished them, watched them grow and then shared the fruits of our labors with our neighbors? It could be the seeds of kindness or generosity or humor or compassion. All kinds of seeds. In this charming book, Bidemmi is writing her own stories about cherries and cherry pits. Each story centers on a different character but each story also centers on cherries and their pits. Old, young, black, white, men, women all have a story to tell and a seed to plant. Finally, Bidemmi tells her own story and that is about planting her seeds and sharing her fruit with her entire neighborhood. The simplicity of her plan is powerful and her voice and her drawings invite you to join her.
