Inspiration

This is a photo of the sweet pea who inspired the author, Justin Meckes, to write the Sweet Pea books. Just weeks after this little one’s birth, Justin began referring to her as his sweet pea. After quite a few more nicknames, he happened to refer to her as a bean. It was on that day that the legumes were born.
