The Night Flower by Lara Hawthorne - ESSENTIAL

The Night Flower by Lara Hawthorne. PICTURE BOOK. Big Picture Press (Candlewick), 2018. $17. 9781536206166



One night a year, a flower blooms atop a saguaro in the desert. Leading up to this moment, we learn about all the ways the desert comes alive and leans in toward this big natural event.  

Rarely have I seen an informational text that is able to use rhymn without it feeling heavy-handed. This book has a light touch and yet is also packed full of good information. And what a fun subject to learn about - my entire family was delighted by this flower.
