Maybe You Might (Lantana Global Picture Books)

We rated this book:


A little girl yearns to make a difference in her homeland. The river is no more, and the land is parched beyond imagination. She discovers a tiny seed and digs a shallow hole alongside the dry riverbed. For days, she nurtures the morsel, breathing life into what so many have said is an impossibility. Despite their sentiments, the seedling spreads its roots deep into the soil, bearing luscious fruit that provides nourishment for the child and her community. Her diligent efforts have a ripple effect, and as time progresses, the once waterless terrain gives way to fertile ground.

This is a heartwarming story of hope, resilience, and transformation. The depth of belief the young girl has in herself and her efforts to just possibly make an impact on those around her as well as on Mother Nature itself sends a powerful and poignant message to youth: Even though “they say you can’t change the world,…you never know…maybe you might.”

Brazilian artist Anna Cunha’s life-like images gloss the pages in spectacular pastel blends and tranquil earth tones. They’re unique and captivating, welcoming and aspirational. This is truly a masterpiece from which children can gain insight and vision for creating a brighter tomorrow.
