Class troublemaker Simon Martin isn't at all sure that caring for a sack of flour for three weeks is the best way to spend his time. His teacher has assigned each of the students to care for their "flour babies" as if they were real babies. Simon thinks that the reward for participating in this project will be a huge flour fight at the end of the time. That's what keeps him going. What he didn't expect was how much he would learn from his FLOUR BABIES.
