This beautifully illustrated children's book was created because of Gertrude Teutsch's love for the harethistle (or sow thistle), a tall relative of the dandelion, that grew around her home. As a gifted mother, teacher, and artist, she found a way of presenting the development of this plant to children through a delightful storybook. Gertrude's pictures and narrative imaginatively explore the stages and formations of the plant and bring them vividly alive. This book will engender a love for and a lively interest in nature a wonderful. It offers a resource for parents of young children, as well as teachers of kindergartens and early grades.
