About Love Grows and Grows

Love Grows and Grows: A Blooming Story for an Extended Family illustrates a healthy, collaborative approach to co-parenting. Styled as human-hybrid flowers, the characters themselves are a metaphor for growth and the evolution towards love. 
With kindness and patience, we see a mom and a step-mom model a wonderful example on how to put their children first, working together to create a blended family with happy and confident kids.  This example of unconditional love is what empowers Flora and Leaf to embrace a new definition of a typical family and cultivate a new “normal” that benefits everyone involved.

What People Are Saying

As a clinician, I find this story to be a priceless tool useful in accompanying a child through his or her journey of becoming a blended family.

I am so impressed by this book!  What a message about blended families and how to put children first!  It's great to know when children are seeing what used to be perceived as a negative... "the stepmother"... they can now turn to this book for positive reference.

This is a wonderful story about unconditional love, and the most beautiful children's book I have ever seen!
