Too Many Carrots” by Katy Hudson is a book about a rabbit who has too many carrots and can’t fit them all in his house. He decides he needs to find a new home for him and his carrots.

The stem of the carrots should start to grow in about a week (see diagram below) if I actually did this right. We will soon see what happens!
