Porcupine’s Seeds by Viji K. Chary

Porcupine longs to grow beautiful sunflowers in his garden just like Raccoon. When Raccoon gives Porcupine seeds, she says that all they need is soil, sun, and water. But growing sunflowers is not easy for Porcupine.

This was a very cute read on what it takes to get a seed to grow.   Actually what it takes for anything work and hardship go hand-in-hand, but the dividends are great.  Patience and perseverance are important in most things.  Kids are much like porcupine in a way because they don't like to wait for results. The illustrations are very colorful and effective.   

Viji K. Chary was born in India and immigrated to the United States at the age of two. Her passion for writing stories began in elementary school and has evolved from coaching children in various activities; including gymnastics, classroom activities and creative competitions. Her stories have been published in Highlights for Children, Ladybug Magazine, Hopscotch for Girls and many more.
