Through brilliant color photographs of a variety of flowers, young children are introduced to concepts such as: big/little, small/large, colors, and flower images and names. Comparing flowers to people introduces young children to larger concepts such as: people of different colors, people from different countries, and people with disabilities all being welcome in the “garden.” A great ebook to read to your young children for a fun learning experience.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was visiting Universal Orlando in Florida and my internal kid (inner child) loved Seuss Landing. I was captivated by the magical trees and the rhyming of Dr. Seuss. When I returned to my hotel room, I merged the flower photographs I had been taking for years with rhymes that flowed onto the page. Long an advocate for embracing people from other cultures, other countries, other races, and other abilities, I wanted the flowers to represent people to the young children as examples of love of all.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My flower photographs became the characters: there were large and small, big and little characters (flowers/people), characters of different colors, characters from different places, characters with varying differences in abilities, and young and old characters.
Every day I spend hours
saying hi to my flowers.
The flowers, you see
are like people to me.
Some flowers are short, some are tall.
Some flowers are BIG, some are small.
