Grace is out picking flowers when she wanders into the woods and loses sight of her mother. Lost and confused, Grace seeks out the help of some forest friends, but doesn’t listen to their instructions and continues deeper into the woods before they can help her find her way out. Can Grace learn patience and obedience before she gets too far from home to return?
The Flower Girl is an important tale demonstrating the importance of listening. Throughout the book, Grace learns that not listening can have negative consequences. She is a wonderfully dynamic and relatable character. The story has a good pace and is easy to read in one setting. The illustrations in The Flower Girl are bright, colorful, detailed, and consistent. I wish there was more illustration around the pages with words, but overall, the illustrations fit the story perfectly. The book would be perfect for ages 4-10 and has a wonderful message. It also has simple language and wording that children will understand. The ending is beautiful as well, showing that all mistakes can be forgiven. Both parents and children will enjoy The Flower Girl.
