I honestly don't think Seedfolks is the best book. I haven't been able to read that much of it but it is very repetitive, new foreign person, see the garden, have some big memorable thing, then contribute to the garden. At this point I don't really know that much about the characters, but they all seem pretty good. I think the activities have all been very fun. I really like Mr. Howard's flowers and Mrs. Lubich's rocks. I think I liked them so much because they were artsy, and you didn't have to think as much.
