A little boy plants a carrot seed. His mother says, "I'm afraid it won't come up." His father and his big brother agree. At first, it seems they're right. But the little boy knows better. So every day, he pulls up weeds and waters the ground. Until, one day, just as the little boy knew it would, something very special happens.
