The New Roots Experience by Jill Scholl

This is the story about two boys. It’s not a spreadsheet crammed with numbers and statistics. It’s not a propaganda report selling an agenda. It’s just a story about two boys and their triumph over numbers and statistics.

Once upon a time in the small village of Lansing, there were two brothers who were so different, no one even knew they were related. Elder son was a giant over 6 feet tall who, despite his strength and grand size, did not enjoy sports. He was gentle and sensitive. He liked to hold soft critters and sit in the woods, listening to the quiet song of the forest.
