The Three Sunflowers Los Tres Girasoles tells of a turbulent day in the garden where a trio of sunflowers -- the tall, wise Gloria and young Florecita and Solecito -- face unexpected and chaotic events they have no power to stop. Through it all, Gloria guides and reassures the youngsters and reminds them of the nature and purpose of a sunflower's life, "We are sunflowers, golden and radiant. Our job is to be loving and peaceful wherever we stand." After a dark night of uncertainty, the story concludes with a delightful and inspiring ending. This beautifully written and illustrated book offers comforting messages of hope, compassion, love and peace, with new perspectives for living in an unpredictable world.
