In Growing Gold, a wise mother tricks her sons into learning the value of work. Warmly narrated by author and voice performer T.V. Padma, this traditional story from India depicts three boys who aren't interested in working on the family farm; instead, they spend all their time dreaming of gold. But when their mother suggests that gold is buried in the field, they have a change of heart. Throughout this short story, Padma brings a sly wisdom to the words of the mother, and an excited enthusiasm to the boys as they discover a new kind of riches.
