When Dandelion blooms in a beautiful, colorful garden, she is excited to meet everyone around her.
But when flowers start getting picked from the garden, Pansy tells Dandelion that she is a weed and no one will ever pick her from the garden.
Dandelion has petals just like any of the other flowers. Why wouldn't anyone choose her?
Will Dandelion ever be picked from the garden?
We picked this book for its title. It's a story of hope and inclusion, leading to a cheerful ending for the beautiful Dandelion. The illustrations are simple and work well for the storyline.
