Loving words can heal a situation

Buy Bloom

Bloom is an emotionally rich story

We’re delighted that Bloom has made it onto Beth Rowe’s top recommendations over on Everybody Reads CIC! Read Beth’s review below.

This is an utterly beautiful, emotionally rich story which has the feeling of a classic picture book. It tells the story of a grumpy old man who shouts at a little girl when he spots her talking to a beautiful flower in his garden. The rest of the story tells us about his attempt to force the plant into flowering again. Unsurprisingly his bullying & berating tactics don’t work; he ends up seeking advice from the little girl and her loving words heal the situation.
