Sammy has to write an essay for his science class on growth and development, but he just doesn’t understand what’s interesting about how we grow. That is, until his room starts to come to life! The bacteria in his shoes, the sea creatures on his wall mural, his pet zebra fish, and a stuffed chicken teach Sammy about the incredible ways that life develops and grows. Sammy learns about his own growth from a single cell, and that he still has a lot of growing to do!
