A little mouse named Luke is having a birthday and he is very excited about all of the presents he will receive. He is disappointed when his wise, old grandfather gives him a bag of seeds. However, his grandfather makes him a promise that if he takes care of his present it will grow into something to climb in and something to eat. Luke runs to the planted seeds the next morning hoping to find the seeds grown. His grandfather takes the opportunity to teach Luke about patience. As the story progresses Luke learns more about patience and responsibility and is eventually rewarded. Full of beautiful illustrations and cute little mice, Luke & the Little Seed is a good choice to teach about patience and responsibility to children ages 3-6.
