I think that the format is ok but kind of jumpy. It jumps from person to person in each chapter and I don't really like that. I think the big idea is that in the beginning the community wasn't a community. But in the end they came together. I like the little girl who started all of it and the boy who sleeps in the lot with a pitch fork. I only remember doing one activity for seed folks and that was with Mr.Howard. We made flowers out of aluminum cans. It was really fun.
