Every night Amanda is secretly playing on her phone past her 9:00 curfew.
Then the day after that, Amanda wakes up reeaaaallllyyy late.
Amanda's mom wants her to wake up earlier, be more responsible and go on her phone less. So she gives Amanda plant seeds to plant and grow.
"MOOOMMMM IT'S NOT GROWING!! I ALREADY WATERED IT!" the little girl sleepily screams. In response her mom says, "It's because there is no sunlight, you have water and air but plants need sunlight to make their own food and fill their tummies. The tiny part called the chloroplast inside them make sweet sugar which is the food."
She then trudges over too the window sill and places the plant there.
