Publisher Description

Winner of the Governor General's Literary Award for Children's Illustrated Book

A New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book of the Year

In this wordless picture book, a little girl collects wildflowers while her distracted father pays her little attention. Each flower becomes a gift, and whether the gift is noticed or ignored, both giver and recipient are transformed by their encounter.

“Written” by award-winning poet JonArno Lawson and brought to life by illustrator Sydney Smith, Sidewalk Flowers is an ode to the importance of small things, small people and small gestures.

Sidewalk Flowers

LOVE this book! As an art teacher there are so many ways that I can use this with my students.
I can’t wait to get back to my students this fall to share it with them. Young eyes can see things that we miss sometimes. Beautiful ideas. Beautiful illustrations.
