My Sunflower explores the metamorphosis of the sunflower--from a tiny seed to a gigantic, beautiful flower--through colorful, pop-up illustrations and spreads. Children learn about the stages of a sunflower's life and the biology of plant growth, from planting the seed and watering the sprout to watching the bud bloom into beautiful petals. Each spread opens and lifts into a striking, colorful paper-engineered 3-D pop-up that showcases each specific stage of the sunflower's growing cycle. My Sunflower introduces young children to the basics of garderning and farming, instilling a love and awe of nature that will fuel their curiosity for many years to come.
