Please grow : lessons on thriving for plants (and people) / Alex Testere.

Testere, Alex, (author,, illustrator.).


"Discover the life lessons plants can teach you--from the importance of putting down roots to leaning on others for support and nourishment--in this charming, illustrated guide to personal growth. Every idea, relationship, or project begins with a seed: A seed of creativity, a flicker of hope, an inkling of motivation. In Please Grow, illustrator Alex Testere takes us on a journey through the life of a well-tended plant or garden--from nourishing a seed to propagating, protecting, pruning, and beyond--relating the lessons we can learn from the natural world to our everyday lives, including: Planting a seed is only the beginning. A flower is a reminder of what is possible when the right circumstances align. Extending your roots is like building community -- both are lifelines. Compost old ideas and experiences to create fuel for a fresh start. Nothing lasts forever-and in some cases, that can be a good thing. With sweet, vibrant art, ecological sidebars, and a sprinkling of practical plant care tips, Please Grow is a gentle reminder of life's cyclical, ever-blossoming nature. We all have the power to plant our own seeds and harvest our own blooms. So, what are you waiting for?"--Publisher.
