Sidewalk Flowers

Sidewalk FlowersWritten by JonArno Lawson, Illustrated by Sydney Smith


Sidewalk flowers has four starred reviews and I agree. I love this sweet and simple wordless book. The story shows mostly black and white illustrations of a young girl on a walk with her father. As she walks she collects flowers from the cracks in the sidewalk. Then she finds ways to share her flowers. What a great reminder of how simple random acts of kindness can be. The small pops of color really add to the story as well.
