How many times do we have ideas? How many times do we pursue our ideas and how many times do we let them go?



This is an enlightening and encouraging story about a boy who has an idea, but does several things with it...ignores it, lets others dissuade him from growing it, and finally accepting it.



Once he decides that he likes his idea, he nourishes it and allows it to blossom. And blossom it does...


The colors in the book go from sepia to vibrant showing that the idea has come to fruition.

What will you do with your idea(s)?
