The Dandelion Seed's Big Dream
By

Rating

Product Description:

PreS-Gr 3—This sequel to The Dandelion Seed (Dawn, 1997) literally begins where the previous volume ends, using the final illustration in that book to begin this story of a dandelion seed's journey. Instead of drifting over idyllic natural landscapes like its predecessor, this seed floats to a city. Rather than falling into "rich, soft earth," the seed ends up in a Styrofoam container in a junk-strewn lot. Only after a clean-up crew arrives in spring to prepare a community garden can the seed put down roots and fulfil its dream of blooming. Minimal text on colourful spreads facilitates group sharing. Two pages of information and suggested activities about dandelion growth, seed dispersal, and related topics will help adults plan ways to extend learning. Together with the original, this book should stimulate discussions of themes, such as patience, beauty, and courage, as well as a debate about a dandelion's status as flower or weed. Libraries without the earlier volume might consider purchasing the pair, although the new book can stand alone.—Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University Library, Mankato --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
