One hundred seeds that flew away
A tree is waiting, hopeful.
What is she waiting for?
For the right day to release her seeds.
A day that is just right, a day that is the day!
This day arrives, but the adventure is just getting started…
Because, if we do the Maths, how many seeds off the one hundred that flew away, will have landed in good grounds?
How many of those will be eaten by birds?
How many will end up at the bottom of a river?
In the end, how many will have turned into an adult tree?
In this book, we do the Maths, without ever losing hope. Even if the story appears to be on a roll of infinite subtractions! Who will manage to trust that everything is going end just fine with this mother tree?
(Will it, really? Let’s have our fingers crossed!)
A book that brings the forest to the spotlight, celebrating the endurance of seeds, along with the intelligence of trees and nature.
Suitable for readers of all ages.
