On a winters day, a mother and child take a stroll through the park, tossing sunflower seeds along the way. Unbeknownst to them, these seeds start an entire cycle of life around them. One stray seed sprouts into a sunflower, while a pair of cardinals feast on the rest and begin their new family. Weaving together the growth of the sunflower with the development of the cardinals family through the seasons, the evocative poem and expressive collage illustrations gracefully portray the interdependency of all living things.
