Book Review - The Boy with Flowers in His Hair

The Boy with Flowers in His Hair

About the Book
In The Boy With Flowers in His Hair, Jarvis offers a moving tale of friendship, kindness, and acceptance, softly touching on the subjects of illness or hardship in a way that young children can understand.

Everyone likes David, the boy with flowers in his hair. He’s sweet and gentle, just like his colorful petals. David and his best friend have a great time together, finding the good puddles, making up songs, and running away from the bees. But one day David comes to school wearing a hat, and he is quiet. When he takes off the hat, his bright petals flutter down like butterflies. Now, where his flowers were looks twiggy and prickly, causing the other children to stay away. But David’s best friend has an idea—a way to help David get his color back, wielding paintbrushes and plenty of love. Sensitively told and simply illustrated, Jarvis’s story invites even the youngest children to talk about difficult subjects in an age-appropriate way—and feel inspired to support others when they face trying times.

My Take on the Book
This was a great book for boys in your life that are sensitive. The story is fun and the illustrations are beautiful. This is a story for all parents to read to their children. The story speaks of friendship, inclusion and more and in the end the story teaches you about acceptance.
