The dandelion’s seeds blow far from the city, landing in a field where they sprout. The story takes place over the four seasons, describing how the dandelion survives: “At last the child found it, plucked it, and took a mighty breath…and whoosh!” The full-color gouache artwork begins in a gray city and moves to the green field with a blue sky. The text is placed on the pages to mirror the movement of rain, wind, and snow. People are shown with different skintones, and the little girl at the end has brown skin and long black hair.

The life cycle of a resilient dandelion that sprouts in a crack of a busy city sidewalk is written as a concrete poem. The dandelion’s seeds blow far from the city, landing in a field where they sprout. The story takes place over the four seasons, describing how the dandelion survives: “At last the child found it, plucked it, and took a mighty breath…and whoosh!” The full-color gouache artwork begins in a gray city and moves to the green field with a blue sky. The text is placed on the pages to mirror the movement of rain, wind, and snow. People are shown with different skintones, and the little girl at the end has brown skin and long black hair. The book ends with four pages of facts on dandelions, making this a nice informational book for young children.
