For many children, (this big kid included) – growing plants is a wonderful thing. This picture book delves into the fascinating journey of a child and his plant….a plant that he definitely thinks is not a daffodil. This is because until the very end (and then there is a twist), it looks nothing like a daffodil! There are so many colourful images in this book which will allow a child to let their imagination fly. Beautifully illustrated, this lovely story is about more than a flower, it is about a budding (excuse the pun), friendship. From little things, big things grow. Charming and sensitive.
