Overview

Lilla's Sunflowers by Colleen Rowan Kosinski

Lilla and Papa enjoy spending magical times in Lilla’s sunflower patch. Before Papa leaves for a trip that will take him far away from home for a long time, Lilla gives him a sunflower seed. “To remember me, Papa,” Lilla whispers.

Seasons pass and Lilla’s mood falls like autumn leaves. Finally, news comes that her papa is coming home! The following summer, to her surprise, she receives letters from families with photos of their loved ones pictured with sunflowers. She learns that her gift to her father brightened the dark days for many people, and that her one small seed continued spreading sunshine across the country.

Colleen Rowan Kosinki’s lyrical style and whimsical artwork brings this story of love to life. Not only will Lilla’s Sunflowers resonate with military families but with any child missing a loved one. This is a wonderful gift for holidays celebrating our country’s military heroes as well a quiet story for bedtime read-alouds.

For kids aged 3 to 6, this is a must-have for military families or for families where one of parent does a lot of traveling and is away from the home for extended periods of time. It also serves as a charming story about sharing what you have and the benefits that can reap.

The art in this gentle picture book is so lovely, I could look at it over and over again. This story sends a message about sharing and kindness—and separation. Lilla's father has to leave on deployment, but she gives him a seed to take with him. That seed multiplies in places Lilla will never see in person. Teachers could use this book in classrooms to have discussions about sharing with others, about acts of kindness, about keeping hope in your heart when you're separated from someone you love—and how something as simple as a sunflower can connect people from different cultures all over the world.
