Grow, Candace, Grow
by Candace Cameron Bure, Christine Battuz (Illustrations)
In Grow, Candace, Grow, written by New York Times bestselling author and star of the hit Netflix series Fuller House Candace Cameron Bure, little Candace convinces her teacher that her class should plant a garden to celebrate spring. She’s so excited as the big day approaches, and soon Candace is dirty from head-to-toe planting flowers with her friends (and her hamster, Harry). When the work is complete, Candace is “underwhelmed” by the puny plantings and wants to know when the flowers are going to bloom. “It takes a little patience,” her teacher explains, but Candace is not particularly fond of waiting. As she comically attempts to speed up the growing process, the garden falters and Candace discovers patience really was the best plan after all.
Following the success of Candace Center Stage, the second book in this bestselling series, written by Candace Cameron Bure and illustrated by Christine Battuz, includes an adorable cover adorned with embossing and glitter.
