What I loved: The story is simple and conveys the power of kind words (not just for flowers). This is an important theme and is demonstrated so beautifully in this story. The illustrations bring the story to life with bright colors, a large and pretty flower, and fun characters. The font is clear and easy to read throughout, making this a great choice for story time. The length of the story and amount of text on each page works well for toddlers through elementary school aged readers.
Final verdict: A heartfelt story with an important theme, BLOOM is a sweet picture book read about the importance of kind words and appreciation. Lovely illustrations add to the fun of this great read.
