"But I'm not like other seeds. I'm a floater, not a grower."

"You are a grower," whispered the Wind, "because that's what seeds do--they grow."

No matter where it lands or how desperately it hopes, the tiny seed can't find a place to grow. Will the tiny seed ever find a home, or will it keep searching and floating forever?

Together, the book's universal story, lyrical cadence and intriguing perspectives vividly convey the inspiring journey of a tiny seed navigating its way through a very big world.

With playful charm and touching insight, A Place to Grow joyfully affirms that there is a special place, plan and purpose for each of us.
