Here's a link to a recent video interview about The Miracle Seed.
It was fun speaking with Professor Mel Rosenberg of the NBN Network out of Israel.
The Miracle Seed is mind-blowing. I can’t wrap my mind around how it’s real. And I don’t know, if I had read only a news article about it, that I would have understood the significance of it quite like I do having read this book. I googled “Judean date palm.” I read the Wikipedia article. I read a couple of news articles and press releases. They just don’t capture how history is literally brought to life. They tell the facts, but Martin Lemelman and The Miracle Seed tells the story with all of its thematic depth and glory. This is the perfect book for schools—Arbor Day read, anyone?—or for anyone with kids interested in archaeology, science, or plants.

“The Miracle Seed” not only reads like an adventure but also exudes an optimism of the kind that children ages 8-14 deserve."
The Wall Street Journal
"The Miracle Seed is a highly recommended book for children, parents and grandparents, who will be entertained and educated by this delightful story of renewal against all odds. It’s a very different and refreshing look at Israeli ingenuity, science and connection to the indigenous flora of the homeland. "

Thanks to Ms. Tavares for inviting me to speak about my new book, The Miracle Seed, and The Tattooed Torah movie. The kids at McMurrich Junior Public School in Toronto, Canada were great! It was a blast.
