A Caldecott Honor Book
Ages 3 to 5, Grades P to K
They All Saw a Cat meets The Wonderful Things You Will Be in this book that redefines what it means to be a flower, what it means to be a human—what it means to be alive.
Incandescent and groundbreaking, Have You Ever Seen a Flower? is a trailblazing, enchanting portrait of the vital relationship between childhood and nature.
In this deceptively simple, deeply profound story, one child experiences a flower with all five senses: from its color to its fragrance to the entire universe it evokes. Have You Ever Seen a Flower? takes readers on a journey of new perspectives. Looking at a flower teaches us to look at everything around us, to expand our perception, and to question what it means to see and be.
This book is a beautiful exploration of perception, the environment, and our humanity. Destined to be a future classic and a family favorite on shelves alongside Harold and the Purple Crayon and Where the Wild Things Are, Have You Ever Seen a Flower? will be a beloved picture book for many generations to come.
