My 3 year old daughter originally checked this book out from the library, but she enjoyed it so much that we bought it. She wanted it read to her every night and now she reads it to us (by picture memory of course). My husband and I enjoy the thought behind the words as well. It is a great book and we all highly recommend it!

UNIQUE, Enchanting, Beautiful
I have a favorite quote that I like and this goes along with what this book is about. I forgot who wrote this, but it goes like this:
"Won't you come into my garden? I would like my roses to meet you."
This book is about how nature is meeting the author and getting to know her and how the author is essentially passive and is just enjoying all that nature is giving back to her emotionally. Basically, the flower is so beautiful, that she feels that it has a personality that wants to spiritutally connect to her. Instead of her leading the dog, the dog is leading her, and she can just feel free to spiritually experience that without having to be the leader--its a book about accepting the moments of life as they come, and the spiritual contact we sometimes don't experience because we are too busy thinking and planning for the next thing.
It's a beautiful book that makes you stop and realize that there is so much happening around us that we just tune out to, but if we just don't think so much and just feel and try to emotionally identify with nature and it's beauty and the beauty inside of us, there is beauty all around us. Its a book about feeling joyful and rejoicing--at least that is what I felt this BEAUTIFUL BOOK is about.
The illustrations are simple but very colorful, but that is what the book is about--the simplicity of life and its wonders---how nature can touch us if we don't try so hard to touch it. Just sit back and let the flower give something to you without reaching out to it---the flower will reach out to you. Without taking a pen to write about yourself, don't try so hard and let the pen write you---JUST LET GO--sometimes we try so hard to be happy, instead of just letting go and letting what's around us speak to us and take us where we need to go.
