I love this book with my whole heart. The illustrations are charming, the text is delicious. This book is just like my childhood in so many ways. The skeptical kid? Check. The wise adult with the acerbically cocked eyebrow? Check. The miracle of a daffodil? Check.This is so hopeful, so sweet, so wonderful. Go read it. Go read it to your favorite small person, then plant them a bulb & create the next generation of gardeners.This is a book I have to own. Maybe you do too.
