Ziggy decides to plant sunflowers in autumn, but everyone knows sunflowers don't grow in winter. Or do they?
Sunflowers Don't Grow in Winter is a true story of hope, determination, and a little boy's love of sunflowers.
Search and Find - on each spread, children will need to find the three B's - a bee, a butterfly and a bird.
At the back of the book, learn how to grow your own sunflowers and how our thoughts are like seeds.
Recommended age: 4 - 10 years
Written by Emily Holdaway from the wildly popular New Zealand blog, Raising Ziggy.
Illustrated by Craig Phillip - international multi-award-winning illustrator.
Beautiful illustrations and message - I adore the time out this creates and the discussion that follows :)
Such a cool book! Definitely worth a purchase
Terrific - my kid loves the book, and so do the kids we gifted another copy to.
Marvelous introduction to the planting of seeds
I have read this book to a group of 3 - 5 year olds. As we have been busy growing and harvesting our own sunflowers, they had a genuine interest in the book. I have met the author several times and the children were fascinated to learn that Ziggy is a real boy, who lives quite close to our Centre.
