Dandelions beautifully explores the father - daughter bond. A little girl notices her father mowing the lawn - in the process destroying her favourite flowers: the dandelions. She rushes out to stop him, but she’s too late, they’re all gone. There’s nothing for it: she’s just going to have to sit outside and wait until they grow back! But fortunately, Dad has another idea.

Teachers NotesTaking her hand, he leads her to the verandah, and there, nestled against a post, are two tiny dandelion puffballs. Father and daughter each blow as hard as they can, and the tiny dandelion parachutes spiral and spin, up, up and away, spreading their seeds to create new generations of dandelions far and wide. Father and daughter lie down together on the grass, watching as they whirl and twirl through the air. Perfect for readers aged 4–9, this is a book that will be cherished by families and recommended by teachers and librarians.
