About the Book

A charming tale about inventive children who plant some summer fun.

“Sunflowers all in a circle make a sunflower – sunflower – house. A castle! A cage! A place to sleep out! But when summer is over and the enormous flowers fade and fall, the sunflower house is gone forever. Or is it?

A Few Reviews:

“Lyrical rhyming text with lush illustrations.”—American Bookseller

“Creative and charming.”—School Library Journal

“Primary and preschool teachers will find this a colorful, child-appealing addition to units on plants.”—Booklist

“We stumbled across this wonderful story at the library one day and checked it out. It was THE book to read at bedtime every single night for the three weeks we had it. She loves the idea of having a place to go with friends where parents are not allowed…and couldn’t fit into if they were allowed.”

“I bought this for our granddaughter to read to and plant a sunflower house. After retiring from education, I would read it to the classes I subbed in my old school, then plant a sunflower house because I was the so called science lady. It is more than a planting book. It deals with the circle of life, how we all die yet others will come after us. There were many special discussions with my little ones about people they had lost.”
