" I am reviewing this book for Amy-Jill Levine; Sandy Eisenberg Sasso, Flyaway Books, Net Galley who gave me a copy of their book for an honest review. I loved how this book told the story of the mustard seed and each stage of its growth until it becomes a huge tree providing seeds for medicines and food. The images are fantastic and the text matches it perfectly. " said.

" Unbeknownst to me, this is a religious parable. The story is about being patient and growing a mustard seed into a tree. In real life mustard grows to bushes. That threw me off a bit while reading this book. Over all the story is fine, but not for me. " said.

"The Marvelous Mustard Seed by Amy-Jill Levine; and Sandy Eisenberg Sasso is a wonderful book about the mighty mustard seed. It contains colorful pictures that children will enjoy. I read this book to my students prior to a discussion of God's mighty hand and His protection. My students enjoyed the story. 

The story takes the reader through the process of growing a mustard seed from planting it, then the roots, then growing, then it finally being a tree that provides shade for everyone to enjoy. The story talks about the importance of the mustard seed. This book tells the parable of the mustard seed and each stage of its growth until it becomes a huge tree providing seeds for medicines and food.

I received an ARC from Flyaway Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

I give this book 5/5 stars. I plan to add this book to my classroom/ school library.

" I won a copy of this. It's a great book to read to little ones. Nice big pages and lots of drawings. " said.

" This was a very cute book, it teaches kids no matter how small it can grow to be great! " said.

"Just received my winning copy of The Marvelous Mustard Seed! This adorable children’s book tells the story of a mustard see that grows into a mustard tree for all the world to enjoy. Although intended to be a parable from Jesus, it stands well on its own as a charming story for children of all religions - and for all the world to enjoy. It will be a lovely addition to my Little Free Library, which is always short on children’s books. And that’s a good thing as it means little ones are enjoying books." said.

"The illustrations are beautiful and interesting, the text is simple and engaging. Levine's emphasis is on the wonder of a plant that normally grows into a small bush becoming an enormous tree, surpassing all expectations and bringing blessings to everyone. The last few pages make the connection to the kingdom of God, and Levine's interpretation highlights that this is more than just about small things unlocking big potential. The commentary on the final page is great - not too much, and not spread throughout the text to overwhelm the simplicity of the parable. The suggested questions, however, drop the parable's kingdom theme, and go straight to little children doing big things. Oh well.

I received this book through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program in exchange for a review.

"The Marvelous Mustard Seed, by Amy-Jill Levine & Sandy Eisenberg Sasso
Illustrated by Margaux Meganack

I was excited to receive a copy for reviewing The Marvelous Mustard Seed, because of my appreciating of Amy-Jill Levine’s writing for the lay person, and looking forward to the telling of this parable, for young children. I like the simple slow moving text, and the way the authors address the miracle of a mustard seed becoming a tree. I buy a lot of children’s books , as often for the illustrations as the text. These are lovely , subtle drawings of diverse children and adults. The authors have also added a note to parents and teachers, with questions , in the back of the book. The book invitees conversation between the adult reading , and the child, and opportunity for both to learn from it and each other. I give the book 5 stars, for hitting all these goals in a children’s book on a spiritual subject.
