Honestly, this book gives me the confidence I need to write a book. Now I just have to find the right phrase to use...over and over and over again.

The only way I can get through this without getting annoyed is if I have my daughter finish the sentences....and I will not be able to use this as a read aloud in school because many home lives are sadly broken.

Un grupo de artistas expresionistas preocupados por el color en la pintura .Este álbum ilustrado es en homenaje a ellos y en concreto a Marc y a uno de sus cuadros sobre caballos azules.Una propuesta no solo para que el pequeño lector se adentre en el mundo del arte , sino también que explore sus capacidades artísticas e imaginativas a través de las artes plásticas". -sitio web.

Preschoolers loved this book! The beautiful illustrations and easy-to-understand narrative make it easy for students to understand the life cycle of a flower. I coupled this with a sequencing activity.
