Flowers and Friendships Need Time to Grow
It's the first day of summer in Buttercup Grove. Hooray! What a better way to celebrate than planting some flowers. Raccoon gathers his friends and they get to work digging holes for the sunflower seeds he found. But there's a big problem. Sunflowers take all summer to grow and that's a long time! It's going to take a lot of hard work and patience before Raccoon and his pals see big, bright flowers. Sometimes, the most beautiful things in life are worth waiting for.
In the tradition of timeless classics such as The Tale of Peter Rabbit and The Many Adventures of the Winnie the Pooh, The Tales of Buttercup Grove series introduces young readers, ages 4-8, to the many fun adventures of Skunk, Raccoon, and the rest of their woodland friends. Along the way, your child will learn timeless Christian values, such as sharing, compassion, kindness, encouragement, and patience, and learn a key Bible verse at the end of each story.
