Recently, I discovered this gem of a picture book, The Boy Who Grew Flowers by Jen Wojtowicz. A few months back, I attended a Barefoot Books party and was instantly attracted to this picture book. After I read this synopsis, I just knew I had to purchase it!
This beautifully illustrated story is targeted for students ages 4-10 years old. I think it would be perfect for kindergarten through 2nd grade as a read-aloud at the beginning of the year. We should all aspire to be like sweet Angelina. What a better world it would be if we did so!
