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.
