Emma got to learn something today that most of us wouldn’t learn in a lifetime. She learned the process and the reasons behind sprouting.
No, she is not a sunflower.
She is a little girl whose mother teaches her with love and patience. And she will be taking away from her lessons not only the nutritional importance of sprouted seeds and beans—she will have another experience in how much her mother loves her.
Told with sweetness and with the aid of some truly beautifully-drawn pictures, this story not only teaches Emma, but it teaches its readers too. Easy enough for kids to understand, and informative enough for the older folks, it is a book that I recommend for all ages.
