The World of Ink Book Tour for June is Porcupine's Seeds, written by Viji K Chary and illustrated by Bridget McKenna. This story is about Porcupine's wish to grow sunflowers in his garden like his friend Raccoon. Raccoon gives his friend some seeds and explains to Porcupine that soil, sun, and water are all that are needed to make the sunflowers grow. However, Porcupine experiences some trouble in his quest to grow the flowers.

My thoughts about the book:
I know it's a children's story, but I could certainly relate to it! Porcupine's Seeds is an adorable story that my children enjoyed as well. After reading the story, my daughter and I discussed the fact that Porcupine worked so hard to follow all the steps, yet things went wrong along the way. We talked about how some things are out of our control, but that things can work out alright in the end. I wasn't expecting to have such a deep conversation with her, but it was a teachable moment that came at just the right time!
