In this wordless picture book, a little girl collects wildflowers while her distracted father pays her little attention. Each flower becomes a gift, and whether the gift is noticed or ignored, both giver and recipient are transformed by their encounter.
"Written" by award-winning poet JonArno Lawson and brought to life by illustrator Sydney Smith, Footpath Flowers is an ode to the importance of small things, small people, and small gestures.
