Granddaughters gather around their grandmother as she points them to the wonders in her marvelous garden.
Where does wonder grow? Grandmother knows it grows everywhere but she especially loves to show it off in what she calls her story garden. She invites her granddaughters to join her there in a sweet meditation on the treasures she’s brought to that magical place—the rocks, the shells, the crystals, the meteorites: how they came to be, how they were formed, how they each have a story to tell. Where Wonder Grows encourages curiosity and thoughtfulness.
