Publisher's Summary

Thirteen lives. One garden. Set in Cleveland, Newbery-Award-winning author Paul Fleischman's poignant book is a large lesson in connectedness and community for all. When a derelict vacant lot is gradually transformed into a community garden in inner city Cleveland, the people of this community find their differences are less apparent and their isolation dissolved. Performed by thirteen multicuturally and age-authentic voices, this audiobook is designed for listeners of all ages.

Critic Reviews

"Fleischman's talent for writing stories from various points of view makes his works particularly appealing in audiobook form. Here, 13 different characters come alive via the distinct performances of a widely varied cast. The range of voices and styles suggests a true community." (Publishers Weekly)

What a wonderful little book!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes and no, This book is technically for the children's market. Even though a 4th grader could probably read the content just fine, I don't think the content is appropriate until after 7th grade. <br/>I actually think adults will love it more than kids.

What other book might you compare Seedfolks to and why?

I've never read anything else like it before.

Who was the most memorable character of Seedfolks and why?

So many of the characters are incredibly powerful, but I love Leona.

Any additional comments?

I actually use this book as part of my curriculum for adults who are in a literacy class. They love the story! I love the story! It is such a simple tale, but it is so rich and full of all kinds of insight into society, immigration, history, and the human condition
