By Navjot Kaur; Illustrated by Nana Sakata
When five ugly and dried up seeds are found, Elders and little ones wonder if they will grow anything at all. Some throw the seeds aside, while others hold out hope.
An allegory rooted in the social despair of a time not too contrary to our own. With a tyrant ruler and unfair social class system, discover how a nation-building event in Sikh history harvested citizens of change.
This Own Voices narrative is a call to action for all who care about issues of social justice.
Have you ever wondered how to become a citizen of change? At the back of the book, you will find five steps on how to grow your own garden of peace.
