MyGreatestChild’s Review

This book shows a lot of motivation and determination with this little boy trying to grow his own carrot. He was able to prove his parents, and brother wrong by keeping his plant well fed and watered that soon it sprouted. This book is great for a science domain in learning. Children will get an understanding of in order to start anything in life you have to finish it, whether anyone believes you can or not. The moral of this story is great for adults and children.
