Customer Reviews of Sunflower House

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sunflower House A wonderful book! The illustrations are beautiful, the text lyrical and deceptively simple. The book conveys a real feeling of the passage of the seasons and the circle of life, in terms which a young child can easily understand. We originally borrowed this book from the library to read to our four year old twins and were all so impressed that we went straight out and bought a copy to keep. There are books which you know you will treasure long after the children have outgrown them, maybe to keep to read to the grandchildren - this book will be one of ours.
