Copper and the Awesome Blossoms

by Dr. Ida Acuña-Garza

About The Book

Copper continues his dream adventures. He contributes to a better, safer, and more beautiful planet this time. In his next dream, Copper remembers when he first ate spinach and how healthy he began to feel.

The weather has been scorching in South Texas, where Copper and his human family live. Mom must water less often as the temperatures rise and her garden suffers. The plants are under stress and not blooming. Copper suddenly got the idea to add spinach leaves around the roots of the plants to help them be healthier and start to thrive. He goes to work, and without realizing it, he creates a composting environment, and the plants develop beautiful blooms.

In this book, Copper shares his idea for readers to create a mini-composting system and learn how to reduce, reuse, and recycle kitchen scraps and dry and green vegetation and water.
