What if you did something, and everyone misunderstood what you did? What if they thought you were being bad, but you thought you were doing something good? What if you were going to get in trouble? Would you have the courage to speak up and tell the truth even if it was really scary and hard to do? A young boy’s grandfather tells the story of when he tried to find a way to help his struggling parents save the family farm and almost got in big trouble. The Banana Farm is a touching tale of trust and loving sacrifice. Sometimes things are not what they appear to be. Sometimes we have to trust that what we are doing is right and accept that it may be hard to explain or we may get in trouble anyway. Sometimes we have to decide to make that sacrifice and hope what happens will work out for the best. The Banana Farm is an inspiring tale about a boy’s decision to love above all else, regardless of the consequences.
