I really liked the book “Celia” because it had very good organization and flow. First, it started by introducing Celia and what she does. Then, it mentioned that a little boy lost his seed and became upset because he had to keep his sadness. Then, it showed Celia going through the town with her seeds, finding the boy’s seed, and helping him in the end. This flow helps the reader see that although Celia has so many seeds, she cared about each person they represented. I also liked this book because of the illustrations. When Celia came by with her seeds, the area around her lit up and became colorful. This is good symbolism for who Celia was to people: someone to lean on and cheer them up. Lastly, I liked this book because of the characters. Celia was a kind-hearted woman and this is shown throughout the story. She even used the gifts she received for helping people to help people even further. She made their lives colorful. The big idea of this story is that if you give back to others, you will usually be rewarded. However, the reward doesn’t have to be extrinsic such as money or seeds; it can be intrinsic like the good feeling of helping someone when they are sad. ( )

An uplifting story that suggests beauty can be found in happiness through the seed of sadness. ( )
