Grow, Candace, Grow, by Candace Cameron Bure, and illustrated by Christine Battuz is a beautiful story about patience. Thank you, Zondervan, for sending me a free copy to review. In this sweet story, New York Times bestselling author and star of the hit Netflix series Fuller House Candace Cameron Bure, writes about a little girl named Candace who is soo excited for spring because it means FLOWERS! She asks her teacher if her class can plant a flower garden, and they do, but Candace wanted to see flowers right away. When they don’t seem to be growing quickly enough, Candace gives them lots of water to try to help, and ruins the garden. And then, unlike most stories where the character saves the day with hijinks like buying fully grown plants and sneaking into the garden at night to cover their mistake, Candace fesses up and apologizes, and then buys new seeds that her class plants. And the second time around she waits patiently even though it’s hard, and is eventually rewarded with beautiful flowers. I love the lesson of the story, and I just read it to my littlest and she loved rooting for Candace. She also loved the beautiful illustrations, especially the glittery cover! This would be a lovely book to give a little girl!
