Cute, and quick read

So cute! The illustrations and the way it’s worded make it a fun read. Both my four year old and seven year old love this book.
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.
