The Dandelion Who Refused to be a Weed
Ann, author

Children/Young Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical)

This is a charming and colorful children's picture book about a dandelion called Dolores who can’t understand why she is called a weed when she is just as beautiful as the other flowers. But when a storm comes, it’s Dolores and the little weeds that keep their heads while the beautiful flowers lose theirs! The story values and promotes self-worth in an easily understandable manner, as one 5* Review has said. It also teaches children that even though they may be different, everyone has their uses!

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Full Text: This is a charming book with a positive, upbeat message. Love the colorfully, vibrant illustrations. This would be a great conversation-starter for teachers and parents to talk to children about what is unique about them. What are their strengths? Reading this book as a class could morph into a science unit on flowers.

5.0 out of 5 stars  Brilliant inspirational beautifully illustrated story, 12 Dec. 2014

This review is from: The Dandelion Who Refused to be a Weed (Kindle Edition)

A delightfully illustrated book telling the story of Delores the Dandelion who can’t understand why she is called a weed as she believes she is just as beautiful as the other flowers. The book is beautifully illustrated, the story well presented and the morals that could be drawn from it are fantastic! Sometimes it isn’t how others see you but how you see yourself and behave that counts - a great lesson for young and old alike.

This book will be great for anyone trying to improve the self esteem of youngsters who see themselves as lacking in anyway compared to their peers. It values and promotes self-worth in an easily understandable manner that could be invaluable with individuals and classes alike. I highly recommend this fantastic book.

5.0 out of 5 stars -  "How can a weed be so beautiful?", 18 Jan. 2015

This review is from: The Dandelion Who Refused to be a Weed (Kindle Edition)

This is such a lovely book to read with a little one, my niece adored it, and it raises some very interesting topics for further discussion.

Dolores the dandelion does not consider herself to be a weed at all, and why should she with her beautiful yellow petals and soft leaves! I love her positive attitude and her excellent self-esteem is certainly something to aim for.

The illustrations are bright and wonderful, it is a really sweet and funny read, I just wish it was longer. A highly recommended children's book. I received this book through NetGalley in order to review.
