Something is sprouting, and it’s not just the beans! 

Dig into the pages of this heartwarming story of a young girl and her mother who embark on a journey together. Is the soil too dry? Is the soil too hard? How will anything grow? No matter how many doubts the mother has or what obstacles stand before the little garden, the daughter never gives up hope that the beans will grow. 

Together, as they nurture the vegetables with love and kindness, they uncover a hidden treasure. What wisdom does this garden have to share?

Praise for The Bean Story

A beautiful message shared for caregivers going through tough times with the ones they care for. Reminders that, “It never hurts to try” and every small step forward counts. Engaging whole child activities to participate in together are a welcome and added bonus.

The bean story is the reminder we all need that despite barriers and challenges we face, despite the rocks, weeds and roots in the way, life can still grow even in the poorest conditions. Don’t give up when life looks bleak, if we did, we would never have happy, resilient, and forever growing gardens.
