In the opening chapter of Little Flower Conquers The World...Almost, Little Flower is a big celebrity! One of her paintings is a finalist in the All City Youth Art Contest, and she is just as proud as can be.
The story weaves us through the process of Little Flower growing older and wiser as she learns that MATH isn't so bad after all. You just have to understand it. Similar to the first two Little Flower Novelettes, this one teaches children of all ages, as well as adults, about the importance of respecting themselves and others, while never giving up on their dreams.
Little Flower Conquers The World...Almost, the third novelette in the Children of the World Storybook and Educational Series is part of Florita Bell Griffin's Little Flower™ International Cultural Art Project.
