This book talks all about a bad seed why he’s the bad seed what bad things he does to other people and how they talk about him behind his back. The last couple pages say how he’s trying to make improvements but he still a bad seed just not that bad. Written by someone with no educational or therapeutic background. It would be a great way to give a kid a phobia. This is a review by someone with two masters in education.
Personally as a mom and Sunday school teacher, I would have preferred to see a “why”. It describes what happened to him to make him “bad” and change his attitude, but not a reason for the attitude to turn around. What makes him change his mind and want to be good? Does he realize that he has no friends, and wants some? Is he tired of being alone? Does another seed talk to him and encourage his attitude?
There is no “want to” motivation.
As a parent you could talk to your child and ask them what they think could have happened to turn him around, but there is no actual life lesson given in the book when there’s no solution to the problem.
It almost feels disjointed like there was another page or two in there that the editor cut out to make the book a certain number of pages. But you loose a bit of the story.
In the scary world, we live with school shootings being carried out by teens with complex issues, this book provides food for thought and promotes possibilities of change!
My first-grade students LOVE this book. It is in "Our Favorites" bin to be read over and over.
Thank you Jory John! This is now one of my all time favorites and I will be reading it and promoting it year after year in my classroom! I cannot say enough positive words about this story. Buy it, you won't be disappointed!
