Maddy's Sunflower

Sunny's legacy!

Granny gives Maddy a small sunflower plant and instructs her to plant and care for it in her garden. Maddy kept an eye out for the plant every day until a magnificent sunflower bloomed one day. Maddy named the flower Sunny, and she spent the entire summer with it. However, the flower began to wither when summer came to a close. Maddy became concerned and rang her grandmother. What happened to Sunny?



We picked this book for its title. The story is about a little girl who develops an interest in caring for plants and learns about their life cycles. The plot also includes a heartwarming narrative about a grandmother and her little granddaughter's relationship.



Children might discover an interest in plant care after reading the story of Maddy and Sunny in Maddy's Sunflower by Toshi Ikagawa and MJ Brooks.
