A Series the Whole Family Can Enjoy

For today’s post I’m going to step back and introduce my series for any new readers to the blog. So if you haven’t yet heard of my children/YA series, Seed Savers, here is a quick introduction:

Seed Savers is set in a future where gardening is illegal and real food unknown. Three young friends must decide what to do when they discover the truth about the “old ways” of food. Out to stop them is GRIM, the government agency controlling the nation’s food.

More information about each book in the series can be found here.

Who might enjoy this series?

  • adults who like children’s books such as Little House on The Prairie, Anne of Green Gables, The Giver. The main characters in Seed Savers start out at age twelve.
  • children who like adventure, but not violence
  • teens and tweens who like romance, but just a hint of it
  • people who prefer not to read profanity
  • those interested in speculative fiction
  • gardening class teachers
  • homeschoolers
  • folks who grew up on farms
  • folks who wish they had grown up on farms

But here, let other readers tell you about the series. Below are links to reviews written about Seed Savers books, or you can check their Amazon pages.

  1. I tutor children (not usually this age though), but parents often ask for a book/series to their young teen, a book that is wholesome and not so much of this world. This looks like a great series to recommend. Glad you are my neighbor at Kid-Lit.

  2. This sounds like a really intriguing and interesting concept for a story 🙂

  3. Love the series Sandy! Keep writing! Thanks for joining us in the Kid Lit Blog Hop!

  4. This is a fantastic series. I haven’t finished all the books yet, but am enjoying it very much. I hoping to get my daughter to read them soon. Thanks for sharing these great books on the Kid Lit Blog Hop!

  5. This is interesting! I really love the idea that the kids have to find “real food”. This would be great for a gardening unit.

    Seed savers. Seed savers? I think a woman linked up a really intriguing review last week. I wasn’t sure it was even a book by the way she talked about it. I thought it was a book – but after closing the browser window, I was like – hum? I wonder if my comment was random.

    This looks like a really great series, and I am glad to know it’s really a book – and I’m not a complete fool! I am sure homeschoolers would want to know about this.

    Thanks so much for sharing.

    • Hi, thanks! I linked up a review last week done by a reviewer after the release of book 3. That’s probably what you saw. The first book, Treasure, could easily be used in a gardening unit. In fact, there is so much basic teaching in the first book that some people find the first third of the book to be a bit slow. Treasure is free as an ebook, so why not download and take a look? Thanks for stopping by! (ps, I was teaching middle school when I wrote Treasure, so it is also full of similes, metaphors, etc. etc. :))
