"Seeds" by David Ankrah

Find out what happens to Palooko and Greecho as they go through life and one mysterious day an event takes place that would change both of their lives forever...

"Seeds" is a very slim volume that has a big message.  Palooko and Greecho both receive seeds at the end of their long work day but they both do something different with them.  Palooka divides his into thirds - one part that goes to his wife so they can eat, one part in their food cupboard and the last part in his secret jar.  He wants to try to plant them. 

Greecho eats his as soon as he gets them.  When outsiders come to their village, the people want the big shiny objects they have in trade for their seeds.  Greecho and Palooka both make very different decisions and it affects their lives.  "Seeds" is a very unique story that explains to young children how to invest, save money, use it and how debt occurs. A very entertaining story with a good learning tool.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Wendy

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
