Review: Sunflower House

User Review  - Emmy Ryan - Goodreads

This is a book about a boy who grows sunflowers and makes a play area out of them. The pictures show details about how the flower looks before it grows out of the ground. Children could learn about how flowers work and that flowers grow from seeds. Read full review
