Melissa pointed her tiny, 5-year old finger at the leaf. “Daddy. What’s that?”
“That’s a dewdrop, sweetie,” said Joshua.
“What’s a dewdrop?”
“Well,” said Joshua. “Most think it’s a drop of water, but actually, it’s a tiny Universe. It looks just like ours. The people living there don’t know it’s tiny. They think everything inside is the right size.”
“Are they nice?”
“Oh yes, just like you.”

“It holds a tiny Universe,” said Jacob.
“…a small Universe,” said John.
