This book is a retelling of Hans Christian Anderson's classic tale, "The Pea Blossom." It is the story of one small pea that lands in the windowsill of a sick girl and begins to grow into a pea plant, bringing new life and healing to the sick girl.

This book can be used to discuss how an ordinary person can make a big difference.

It could be used in a science unit on plants, as it shows how the pea grows out of one plant and then creates a brand new plant.

Math: There are 5 peas in the original pea pod. Subtract by one repeatedly to get the one pea in the windowsill. That Pea turns into its own pea many pea pods grow on that one plant? How many peas are in each pod? Teacher can provide different numbers and students can practice calculating.
