Float and drift with the seeds set to bloom into beautiful flowers in this whimsical picture book. At the book's start, a feathery dandelion seed floats off the flower while a young girl holds onto one. The illustration shows only a dandelion flower on a yellow page with simple text. Turn the page to see ten dandelions that have bloomed and the same young girl, just older, still hanging on to one of the stems. The same cycle is repeated for a lilac seed, with a young girl peeking from behind. A turn of the page reveals lovely lilacs with the same young girl, slightly older, kneeling on a branch. Peonies, balsam, hollyhock, and lotus flowers also are shown in the book. Readers are encouraged to engage their creativity and think about themselves as flowers as well. The enchanting illustrations can open up a science conversation about seeds and plants. This book is a sweet message to young children about growth and cycles. Great for a home library or preschool classroom! Translated from a South Korean picturebook.
