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.

This book helps children to understand that if you just try then great things can happen! The children loved it and I guess next term we will try growing winter sunflowers!

Our Grandchildren loved the book and have found it really useful. Sunflower seeds have been potted and are being well watered. Have recommended it to others.
