Hailey picks dandelions wherever she goes. As she grows older, her mother and nana teach her how to make yummy food with the flowers and leaves, her grandpa teaches her to make medicinal tea with the roots, and at summer camp, she even uses dandelions to make beautiful artwork. As Hailey ages, she teaches her own children and grandchildren about the many uses of dandelions she so dearly loves. Uh-oh . . . Little Sophie, her granddaughter, thinks they are weeds and should be killed! Can Hailey show her just why she loves dandelions so much?
