WellRead Kids March Selection: Have You Ever Seen a Flower? by Shawn Harris
This month's book asks its readers if they have ever seen a flower. Like 'really' seen a flower. It's a deceptively simple but deeply profound story of one child experiencing a flower with all five senses: from its colour to its fragrance to the entire universe it evokes. The book takes readers on a journey of new perspectives. Looking at a flower teaches us to look at everything around us, to expand our perception, and to question what it means to see and be.
Incandescent and groundbreaking, Have You Ever Seen a Flower? is an enchanting portrait of the vital relationship between childhood and nature from artist and musician Shawn Harris.
"Some books provide a chance to escape, while others offer space for contemplation and reflection. It's the rare book that does both ... Its joy, colour and hopefulness will ignite the imagination of anyone lucky enough to experience its magic." BookPage, starred review
