I grew in the rain



Story by Katya, whose native languages are Ukrainian and Russian. Katya is in 10th grade.

THIS is both a funny and beautiful little story about an acorn who goes off on an adventure. He dreams of being a huge tree. When he sees the other acorns dream about this too, he wants something better. He goes to find his own way, but finds that it’s hard to grow up. It rains and he cries because he thinks it’s the end and his life was nothing. I like when he cried because after that, he felt very strong. He found his own place and jumped into it and grew into a beautiful tree. I think the author wants to say that when life is difficult you shouldn’t feel upset. Let it help you make your life better. Let it help you grow.
