"While the growing plant provides the structure for this quiet picture book, the comfortable, cross-generational camaraderie adds another dimension to the story. Australian writer and illustrator Honey matches the simply written text with paintings that bring a potentially static story line to life with pleasingly varied compositions and subtly drawn features and gestures that reveal the characters' emotions. A welcome addition to read-aloud collections, this connects with picture books encouraging imagination as well as those on plants and gardens." --Booklist Online

"The artwork, done in muted colors, is simple and soft and shows the child's imagination as he watches each stage of the bulb's growth. The relationship between the exuberant boy and his encouraging neighbor is a delight as they care for the plant. . . . A charming story, beautifully illustrated." --School Library Journal starred review
