About this item

This heart-warming picture book explores the bond between a father and his daughter. One day, a little girl notices her father mowing the lawn--in the process destroying her favourite flowers: the dandelions. She rushes out to stop him, but is crushed to see that she’s too late; they’re all gone.

She quickly knows what to do: she’s just going to have to sit outside and wait until they grow back! Fortunately, Dad has another idea. Taking her hand, he leads her to the front step, and there, nestled in a crack in the concrete, are two tiny dandelion puff balls.

Father and daughter each blow as hard as they can, and the tiny dandelion parachutes spiral and spin, up, up and away, spreading their seeds to create new generations of dandelions far and wide. They lie down on the grass, watching as they whirl and twirl through the air.

Exquisite watercolour illustrations combine with lyrical text to create a story that’s perfect for readers aged 4-8. This is a book that will be cherished by families and recommended by teachers and librarians, exploring as it does the resilience of nature, the art of forgiveness, and the love between a parent and child.
