This is another wonderful picture book that is as colourful as it is inspiring. I am SO glad that I picked up this book from my local library. What a great read!
Tokyo lives in a small house between giant buildings with his family and his cat, Kevin.
For years, highways and skyscrapers have been built up around the family’s home where the wilderness once flourished. It seems that they will never experience nature again.
But one day, an old woman offers Tokyo three seeks, telling him they will grow into whatever he wants.
This is a thoughtful and inspiring story about environmentalism and imagination. I love picture books with such a powerful message for kids of all ages.
