Description

In a vast ocean, a single grain of sand seems hopelessly small and unimportant.
But over time, the sand begins to change. Layer by layer, it grows and transforms. Its beauty starts to shine.

Exquisitely crafted by an award-winning author-illustrator team, this luminous, uplifting story reminds us of the amazing capacity for change within us all.
