The video format follows that of a live presentation in schools. It features the read-along story and sing-along song along with examples of the "One Seed" Kid's Art Gallery, some very important questions for children to answer about seeds, and examples of seeds as ideas: the Wright Brothers and the first plane; Alexander Graham Bell and the first telephone.

"One Seed" is for the home, classrooms and school assemblies. It is about seeds and what comes from a seed; and it is as a metaphor for being different, making a difference, having courage, ideas, hope. It is perfect for Spring and Earth Day presentations. "One Seed" can also be a play.

"One Seed" is the story (and song) about a seed that decided to grow on the desert when all the other seeds said it was impossible and couldn't be done. It is a story about courage, hope, being different, making a difference, and of course, about growing seeds. It is a story that has been used in schools in several countries around the world as a play and for classroom and assemblies.

See www.oneseedstory.com for presentation outlines and suggestions for classroom discussion, and how to turn One Seed into a class play. The One Seed story is also available in French as "Une Petite Graine" and in Persian (Farsi).

See www.quillsquotesandnotes.com/published-os-gallery.htm for pictures drawn by primary school children in Spain in their English as a Second Language, and pictures from England, Canada, US, Europe, Dubai and Iran.

"A simple story about life which children and adults the world over will treasure - and the seed will be sown in many a classroom and home..."
- Christine Carruthers - retired teacher, UK

"This little story... gently reminds us that the courage of one has deep and far-reaching impact."
- Sound Kamloops, Canada

Of course the best reviews are from the children, and from parents and grandparents who have to put the children's CD player in their rooms because they play the CD over and over and over again...

For more reviews, information about the book (electronic PDF), CD (MP3), actions for the song, the translations into French and Persian, presentation outline for schools, the One Seed Kid's Art Gallery and more visit the One Seed Web Pages at www.oneseedstory.com.
