Polly and the Measuring Stick
an ebook with a message for all ages! A modern-day Aesop Fables type-of-tale that addresses the sadness that comes when we compare ourselves to others.
This is a lovely allegory of a little petunia who is “tickled pink” just to be in Mrs. Shumway’s garden, that is until the garden club comes to visit!
What happens when there are “oohs” for Danita Delphinium and “ahhs” for Lucy Lavender, but no “oohs” or “ahhs” for Polly?  Brought down to the ground, the little petunia discovers a secret to coping and, in the process, teaches us a secret of how to do the same.
