Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 28 and still loving it! Dandelion is a wonderful book.. I read it each night as a child. Its one of those books where I have picked up over the years when ever I was feeling down, and it always brought a smile to my face. I still have my copy from 20 some odd years ago, but am purchasing it again for a friends "fill the bookshelf" baby shower. Everyone has been Dandelion at some point in their life.. and it teaches a wonderful lesson to us living in a world where young children think they must look like they walked out of a magazine to be beautiful. Dandelion tale helps you to realize to just be your yourself, others will love you for who you are, not how you look.
