Sunflower House: 01/05/18
Sunflower House by Eve Bunting tells about life cycle of a sunflower, but told through how a group of children use the flowers for some summer fun.
The title tells the basics. The children plant the seeds in a circle instead of in a line. As the flowers grow up, they end up making a natural fort that's only big enough for them to enter. The parents, though, can only enjoy it from the outside.
The sunflowers, though flop over as they become heavy with seeds. I know from my own experience, they probably weren't watered enough. Those giant sunflowers are thirsty plants. They do, however, manage to get some seeds from their crop — enough to replant the house the next year.
