By Helen M. Waters’89
Self-published, 2019

Cover of A Story About Sprout by Helen M. Waters’89.Sprout is new. The heart-shaped furball doesn’t know where he came from or what he is. His new friends Quackers the duck, Lilypad the frog, Lady Dot the ladybug, and Flutterby the butterfly don’t look like Sprout, but they show him that all he has to do is be himself.

Written and illustrated by Helen M. Waters, this vibrant children’s book showcases a memorable cast of characters and powerful messages of acceptance and love. Waters is a project manager and illustrator of children’s books, magazines, cartoons, and greeting cards.
