Blossom and Bud live in Mr. Baxter’s flower shop, among plants of every imaginable size, colour, and shape. Blossom doesn’t like how tall she is and tries to hide her height. Bud doesn’t like how he looks, so he tries to force his flower to bloom. But Mr. Baxter thinks they are just right, as they are, and has a special role for each of them. This story will help kids love themselves all around, not matter their shape or size.

Includes a Note to Parents and Caregivers about nurturing a positive body image in children.
