Sammy and the Cornstalk
by Dave Moen
About the Book
Sammy the Cornstalk grows up with his siblings in a big, big field! As he grows up, Sammy learns not only of his and his siblings’ importance but also those of the animals, soil, water, and life all around him. As his siblings get cut down, Sammy remains one of the last stalks standing. He shares the sadness of losing his siblings and how growing older can be difficult, but using the five senses, Sammy learns to find happiness and contentment, and shares how we can learn to use our own senses to find the small joys in life too!
