Description

The Rainbow Fish for kids who love the garden.

A moving picture book for ages 3 to 8 about a daisy who is told she’s “just a weed”-and embarks on a journey to find her place in the garden.

Daisy is new to the garden and just opening her petals to the sun when Rose tells her that she’s just a weed. What’s a weed? Daisy asks. Weeds aren’t planted on purpose, Rose explains, and they only get in the way. Soon Daisy compares herself to other plants in the garden: she isn’t tall like Sunflower, nor sweet like Strawberry, nor fragrant like Rose. Daisy worries that Rose might be right-that she is a weed after all-until a strange and beautiful plant offers Daisy a different perspective. Maybe Daisy can choose her own purpose! And why do others get to decide who she is?

This sweet and empowering story is the perfect gift for teaching young children about:

Self-compassion and confidence. Daisy learns that she is so much more than “just a weed” and that it’s up to her to define who she is, not others.
Everyone has something special about them, and supporting one another can help us grow.
The importance of loving yourself exactly as you are.

Publisher Review

"Gillingham's bold illustrations... clearly emphasize the emotional turns of the narrative... in this picture book simultaneously about plant biodiversity and accepting difference." -Booklist
