5.0 out of 5 stars The Hope Flower March 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My three-year-old granddaughter loves this story! The illustrations are beautiful and the story itself is a positive hopeful tale of how a trash-covered lot becomes a beautiful flower-filled park in spite of the attempts of the 'angry man' to crush the flowers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great children's book January 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"The Hope Flower" is a great children's book teaching tolerance and peaceful persistance. The illustrations are colorful and cute! Plus, if you view the pages on a fast device, it almost looks like it's animated when you turn the pages, hehe!

1.0 out of 5 stars great title but goes nowhere July 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been waiting & waiting with great anticipation to purchase this book. We don't have a lot of "extra" $$ for us to splurge on things we want just to have them since I can no longer work & am disabled, but for some reason, I really thought this book would be worth my little bit extra. It's not in the least!! I wish I could return this book & spend my $$ elsewhere!!
The story begins w/ a single flower that grew in a trash covered lot. An angry man comes & destroys it, only to find that when the flowers grow back, that no matter how many times he destroys them, beauty cannot be destroyed. I'm certain that was the authors "intent" on the moral of the story being, but I have a real problem w/ how the author lays it all out.
My main "beef" w/ this story is why didn't the author have "beauty" change the heart of the Angry Man? Wouldn't that serve the children who read this story better? I firmly believe so!
I will NOT be reading this to my 6 yr old son. He has enough going on w/out showing him books where an "Angry man," who BTW looks incredibly scary so if you're child scares easily, pass this one up, destroys, destroys, & continues to destroy.
I truly hope the author takes note to my review & instead writes about changes in ppl, & that no matter what u do wrong, there is ALWAYS room for change for the better.

Add that to the fact that my three-year-old granddaughter didn't like it and she loves being read to. What can I say, I'm sorry I bought this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Inappropriate Language January 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I did not like this book for my 6 year old due to the use of the word "stupid" many many times. Other than the multiple use of that word the book wasn't bad.

1.0 out of 5 stars Undesirable word December 11, 2012

5.0 out of 5 stars Against all odds, There is always hope March 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Anger and Stupidity are overcome by Hope. Beautiful Hope. I believe that the message of hope is central to our lives. Without Hope where would we be? I have met people like the angry man who are not able to have beauty around them and must destroy it. It's like as if they experienced the beauty of hope they would not be angry anylonger and they must stay angry so they destroy it to keep themselves where they are. Fear of change, Fear of facing the good and positive in life holds us back. Thanks for a great story. It gives me Hope.
