The Sorry Seeds

Coming September 17th, 2024!

When first-grader Courtney is caught taking an apple from her neighbor’s tree without permission, she wonders how she can make things right again and apologize in a way that shows how she feels in her heart. And since her neighbor is also her teacher, she will have to figure it out by morning. Tossing and turning throughout the night, Courtney realizes it’s not always easy to find a way to authentically say she’s sorry to someone she cares about. Fortunately, an idea takes root and gives Courtney the courage to bring an apology to fruition.
