The Poppy Seeds by Clyde Robert Bulla

The Poppy Seeds

By Clyde Robert Bulla
Level 3

This is only a Level 3 book, but it held my interest as an adult, and I loved it! The official description reads, “In Pablo’s small Mexican village, the only source of fresh water is jealously guarded by a bitter old man. His high walls keep out everyone—except Pablo, who bravely goes there one day to plant some poppy seeds. The flowers that bloom beside his stream bring beauty to the old man, and the precious gift of water to the village.” The story is engaging and the messages are beautiful. I listened to the Audible version and thought it was well done.
