Author Storytime w/ Yasamin Vafai

Sisters Nina and Reena have a small new plant with a big problem: it just won’t grow! They do everything they can to help their plant grow.

Along the way they learn they’re not so different from their little plant: we all need similar healthy habits to grow and thrive.

Written by a pediatrician-to-be, this is a children's picture book about growing up and growing plants.

With intentional representation of disability and diversity and the use of dyslexia-friendly font, this may just be you and your kid's new favorite picture book.

Yasamin Vafai is finishing her final year in medical school, training to become a pediatrician to support growing kids. She lives in San Francisco and loves taking care of her plants, walking among trees, or diving into a good book. Follow her on Instagram @booksbyyv
