Patience pays off for Gus in this sweet and simple story. Spring is here, and Gus patiently waits for his plant to grow. He digs and plants and waters and waits...and waits. Will his hard work be rewarded? The simple text features only a few easy-to-read words per page enhanced with delightfully humorous pictures by the illustrator of the best-selling Froggy series. This story also introduces the concepts of responsibility, observation, and patience, all of which become more important as children enter school.
