Amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, when people across the world stayed at home, we planted seeds of hope for better things to come. We filled our windows with rainbows, learnt our neighbours' names and watched as nature returned to our gardens and cities. And slowly, the seeds we planted grew into blossoming plants. This lyrical, rhyming picture book reflects on a time when, for many people, the world stood still. It celebrates the things we noticed as the world opened up its heart, and it looks to the future with hope.
