"A welcome addition to read-aloud collections, this connects with picture books encouraging imagination as well as those on plants and gardens." —Booklist Online

"[A] playful picture book" with "pastel hues, soft edges, and appealing textures."  –School Library Journal, online

Format: Hardcover
Good book for educators to introduce bulbs to young children. I used it in my pre-school and the children were engaged and excited to plant their own bulbs for a school project.

By Reading Dad on February 17, 2013
Format: Hardcover
My son and I enjoyed this book immensely:
First the drawing / painting are impeccable, engaging, and simply nice to look at.
Second, the story is well told with many themes hidden behind a `simple' line:
Diversity: the Turkish elderly man and the young boy (Tom).
Imagination and creativity: The young boy plays with the daffodil being something else than a daffodil.
Friendship: over this short book (in text) kindness and friendship are shown and developed.
Overall a feel good book, enjoyable, agreeable to look at and to read, both for dad and son (5 y.o.).
PS: I disagree completely with the review rewarding only 2 stars, which is simply negative and gratuitous- Where is the magic!?

Format: Hardcover
This is a very strained text - a neighbor comes over to visit a child again and again - where are the kid's parents? the man's grandchildren come to visit - where are their parents? What does this author have against parents? They simply don't exist in this book. Which is odd, because the kid finally sees the daffodil and exclaims it's a trumpet of gold. Really? This child is wildly excited about a daffodil blooming - I'd love to meet such a child. And his explanations of what the daffodil is strain credulity. This, in other words, is a book without parents, but strictly for parents - and editors.
