Consider the dandelion. It lives life fully, flies with beauty, survives storms, endures darkness, never gives up. It is one of nature?s greatest success stories. Like dandelions, each of us can make the world a brighter place. The trick is to bloom right where we are. Back matter includes information and activities about dandelions and weeds, seed dispersal, and the theme of courage, patience, and perseverance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like this book Do you consider the dandelion to be a flower or a weed? This second book in ?The Dandelion Seed Series? follows the flight of a dandelion seed on its parasail from the countryside to the city as buffeted by the wind, caught in a spider?s web, and trapped in trash. All through its journey, it has a dream. What is that dream? And will it ever achieve it? Author Joseph Patrick Anthony and illustrator Cris Arbo are a husband and wife team. Their first dandelion book, The Dandelion Seed (1997) contains the messages of wonder, beauty, and acceptance. The two also collaborated on In a Nutshell (1999) about an acorn and the life cycle of an oak tree. Both are available from Dawn Publications. The Dandelion Seed's Big Dream emphasizes the themes of courage, patience, and perseverance. Because the dandelion lives life fully, flies with beauty, survives storms, endures darkness, and never gives up, it is one of nature?s greatest success stories. Dandelions can grow where other plants cannot. And like dandelions, each of us can make the world a brighter place. The trick is to bloom right where we are. The ?Explore More? section in the back includes further information about dandelions and suggested activities to help children understand, appreciate, and apply the story. I understand the problems that dandelions can cause in some people?s yards, but I happen to like the bright blossoms of the dandelion, and I also like this book.
