Maybe You Might
From the Series Lantana Global Picture Books
They said I couldn’t change the world; it wasn’t worth the fight. But in my head, a small voice said…maybe you might.
A young girl makes a choice to plant a seed by a long dead riverbed. Little does she know that from this single, small act, a vibrant ecosystem will grow. This inspiring poem – bursting with hope for a greener world – is a love letter to our ailing planet. It shows us that even when the future appears most bleak, each one of us can make a difference.
