by Linda L. Yee
illustrated by Linda L. Yee and Shasta L. Franklin
Plant was growing and discovering new things about his surroundings in the field. With guidance from the other plants and the small creatures of the field, it learned many lessons on life and began to feel everyday emotions like anger, fear, and sadness, as its environment changed. But it is when it experiences the unconditional love of a child who has cared for it through the years that Plant feels the most important emotions of all: love, forgiveness, and happiness.
