An ode to the wonderful diversity of flowers (and their young admirers), this colorful, chunky board book is a work of art meant to be displayed face-out on nursery bookshelves.
Every page turn of this chunky board book reveals a new layer of Helen Dardik’s bright, graphic depiction of a garden in bloom. A gentle introduction to diversity and acceptance, this rhyming story reminds readers that every kind of flower needs its own mix of sunshine, water, and soil to blossom…and that each flower’s unique beauty is an extraordinary delight. You’re a perfect flower, blooming exactly as you should, adding your special color to the garden of the world!

Rich with special effects like foil and embossing, LAYERED VIEW board books are a beautiful, playful way to introduce new perspectives to the little learners in your life.
