A debut book from a young and talented author and illustrator. A simple book, beautifully simple, about planting seeds, waiting with patience for these small, hard, round things to grow from their submerged hiding place. There are few words, but the illustrations guide us through the seasons of the year as the seed develops into a plant while we wait. This book lends itself to life lessons of patience and watching for the gift through faith. Waiting is hard, but worth the time for the beauty of the gift. Ms. MacKays art is wonderfully unique. She makes tiny scenes using a variety of papers and inks, layering the background papers, placing the tiny cut-out paper with ink characters inside a miniature theater. She adjusts lighting, as in a theatrical setting, rearranges the various elements in this tiny theater before she begins to take photographs which end up in print form, inside books for others and now in her own book. She may leave the theater in diorama form too.
