Read full description of the books:A man is given two magic seeds. He is told he can eat one, and it will sustain him all winter, and plant the other one, which will bear two more magic seeds. For several years he does so, and each year winds up with one seed to plant.
But then he gets smart. He decides to eat something else, and plants BOTH seeds and ends up with four magic seeds. From then on, he is on a roll. He can eat and plant and still end up with more seeds than he started with. You are asked to do math problems to find out how many he plants, etc.
He gets married and starts a family. He has many, many seeds. At the end, there is a terrible hurricane which wipes out many of his seeds, but he is left with a few so he can rebuild his life. The last page shows the family praying to the gods (or god) so the seeds will be plentiful and multiply.
The story is itself is interesting.....one time. So it is probably better to get this book from the library than to buy it.
The math was too difficult for my six year old. It starts out easy, but then gets confusing with so many seeds and he does different things: feeds some to his family, gives some away. While I could work out the math if I had time, I didn't feel like taking the time to do so since I was reading the book to my son.
