The Gnome and the Seed: A Growing Up Story for Kids

episode 9 - season 5
published: 2018-12-22

Happy Holidays, friends! This is not a holiday themed story, but it's a very sweet one about growing up and learning to set aside the search for perfection in life. ENJOY!

I will be taking a break to write more stories for you. In the meantime, if you have a moment, please share the show with friends! They will be so happy to have easier bedtimes, peaceful car rides, and generally happier tiny people. I will be ever so grateful, too.

If your tiny person wants to share a story they've written, please send photos or recordings of it to rhea@littlestoriestinypeople.com. I LOVE to see their artwork, stories, and anything else they'd like to share.

BIG THANKS to the listeners who provided sound effects used in the story: RILEY and NORA

You can send me your very own sound effect! Just use the voice memo app on your phone, record your tiny people making a (recognizable) sound, and email it to rhea@littlestoriestinypeople.com! They might just hear their sound in a future story.

Thank you to KENDI for helping me with the reminder at the beginning of this episode!!!

Your child can help me too! Here are the lines:

Remember, there are no pictures. You'll have to imagine the pictures in your mind. You can imagine them however you want. OK, here we go!

Also, my book is available NOW. Find it here: http://mybook.to/littlefoxcantwait Thank you so much to those who have supported my work by getting the book!
