A New York Times bestseller!

This is a book about a bad seed. A baaaaaaaaaad seed. How bad? Do you really want to know?

He has a bad temper, bad manners, and a bad attitude. He's been bad since he can remember! This seed cuts in line every time, stares at everybody and never listens. But what happens when one mischievous little seed changes his mind about himself, and decides that he wants to be—happy?

With Jory John's charming and endearing text, here is The Bad Seed: a funny yet touching tale that reminds us of the remarkably transformative power of will, acceptance, and just being you. Perfect for readers young and old, The Bad Seed proves that positive change is possible for each and every one of us.

    Hi I love the bad seed keep the bad seed books coming

    A bad seed gleefully tells us how Very Very Bad he is, all the mean things he has done. Then he explains that he wasn't always bad and what changed him, about the loving extended family he once had until the sunflower they called home was harvested and his huge family was scattered to the winds literally. He ended up in a bag of sunflower seeds and only survived when the man spit him out. When he landed on the ground, he decided that he was not going to be a good seed anymore. However, telling his story makes him realize that he doesn't like being bad and decides that if he can choose to be bad he can also choose to be good. And he tries very very hard and mostly succeeds so that when he hears someone say 'actually, he's not that bad anymore', he is very very pleased.Okay, I know this is a children's book but, honestly, I loved it. Like so many people in quarantine right now, I was bored and lonely, missing my family who live away and wanted something to put a smile on my face. I had seen this on plenty of lists so when it came up as a recommendation for me on a bookseller's list - odd it seemed since, despite it being a best seller, I am way outside it's intended audience - I figured the price was right so why not.And I am so glad I did. It is cute and funny and the illustrations by Pete Oswald perfectly complement the story. This is the kind of book that I have no trouble recommending wholeheartedly for children who I'm sure will love and parents who will likely be expected to read it over and over again. Or for people like me way past the recommended age who are just looking for something to smile about. A good reminder in times like these that one should never judge the actions of others because you may not know what troubles they are facing.

    The book was too short. It gets you interested and then it's over. It was too good to end so quickly. So I'm disappointed.

    The eponymous Bad Seed of this humorous picture-book examination of trauma and its after-effects does lots of terrible things, from cutting in line to refusing to put anything away in its proper place. Perfectly aware that the other seeds don't like him very much, the Bad Seed reveals his history - growing up on a sunflower, being torn from his family, and then almost eaten by a giant! Eventually deciding he doesn't want to be bad anymore, he makes efforts to change, ending up (like most of us) a mix of bad and good...Having enjoyed any number of Jory John's other picture-books, from his Goonight Already! series to Penguin Problems, I have been meaning to pick up The Bad Seed since it came out a few years ago. Although it's taken me a while, I'm glad that I finally got around to it, as I appreciated both the overarching message of the tale - namely, that bad behavior is often the result of bad things having happened to the wrongdoer - and the humor of it. The illustrations by Peter Oswald, whose work I had not encountered before, are quite cute, and accentuate the humor of John's story. Although I didn't find this one laugh-out-loud funny, I did enjoy it enough that I have plans to track down the companion, The Good Egg.

    This sunflower seed is a bad seed. He wasn't always bad. Once he was a good seed, living on a sunflower, until he was harvested for sunflower seeds. Then it all changed. He wasn't the same seed anymore, that is until he decides to be a good seed again. He still has his bad seed moments, but he works hard to be a good seed. This book would be a great book to remind students that it is okay to have a bad day, but that we should be conscious of how we treat others. Teachers can use this book to teach students about character development as the bad seed turns his life around.

    The Bad Seed was once a happy seed in a lovely sunflower. Could he help it that he was harvested for a bag of sunflower seeds and later spat out under the bleachers at the baseball game? It's no wonder he became bad!Too often, I hear of "the bad kid" in school or even preschool! Preschool and elementary school children are WAY too young to be written off as "bad seeds."I hope that The Bad Seed will remind us of three important things: not everyone is bad all the time; there is a reason for bad behavior; people can change. As the Bad Seed says,"And even though I still feel bad, sometimes,I also feel kind of good.It's sort of a mix.All I can do is keep trying."The illustrations are funny and wonderfully expressive. If you work with children, share The Bad Seed.

    The Bad Seed I about a sunflower seed that was once spit out because he was a bad seed. Ever since then the seed lived up to his name and started doing bad things. He did these things because he wasn't happy in his life. Then one day he decided to make a change and start being good. He made changes and started being happy again. Occasionally he would do a few bad things but he never stopped trying. Other seeds started to notice his positive changes and stopped referring to him as the bad seed. I would highly recommend this to students in Kindergarten to third grade. This book has a great theme of teaching students to never stop changing in a positive way and to not let what other people say define you.

    This is the story of a seed that used to be a happy seed until one day a bad life event makes it mad, and turns to be a bad and every one is afraid of him. However one day he decides to be a good seed, and that positive attitude made it a happy seed.
