What comes to mind when you think of watermelons? You might think how sweet and delicious they are, or how large and heavy they are. But did you know watermelons are also super foods packed with vitamins, and they contain Lycopene, an anti-oxidant that helps rid the body of damaging substances? There are also miniature watermelons that are just as delicious and nutritious, but grow to a much more practical size? Well, this is just what Mini, the only miniature watermelon in her patch, learns when she decides to wander away from the vine all by herself. Even though the large, oval-shaped watermelons make fun of her for being so little and round, Mini learns at a nearby Farmer's Market that small watermelons are what everyone wants! Discover Mini's superpowers and some interesting facts about watermelon in this adorable story about a powerful little heroine.
