One day Fran found a flowerpot filled with soil. "I will grow this flower," Fran said. "Grow flower." But the tips stayed tiny.
Fran is determined to get her flower bud to grow. But what do you feed a fussy flower? Fran figures that the flower will flourish on her own favorite foods--pizza, spaghetti, even strawberry ice cream! But the stubborn bud refuses to bloom. Finally, Fran discovers that a meal fit for a girl isn't necessarily a meal fit for a flower. Just when she gets fed up, Mother Nature steps in with a smorgasborg of sunshine and rain…Won't Fran be surprised!
