Anyone with a small child knows that patience is not a virtue easily won. In this magically illustrated story the young girl Miyuki, who we first met in the critically acclaimed Time for Bed, Miyuki, anxiously awaits the opening of one sleepy flower. When, on the first day of spring, the flower still hasn't bloomed, Miyuki begins a frantic search for water to wake it up. Her grandfather gently encourages her to sit and watch with him, as she learns the important lesson that good things come to those who wait.


Prize-winning writer, poet, and childrenís book author Roxane Marie Galliez has a doctorate in the history of ancient civilizations and traveled the Pacific Islands for several years as a researcher and journalist. She lives near Saint-Etienne, France.

A graduate of the School of Fine Arts in Paris, illustrator and painter Seng Soun Ratanavanh lives outside Paris, France.


Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews:

"Galliez's lively, descriptive text pairs nicely with Ratanavanh's bright, graphic illustrations that feature bold floral patterns in red, yellow, and green as well as iconic Japanese objects such as the swan. Throughout, natural elements such as flowers, rushing water, insects, birds, and more appear prominently both in the foreground and the background, and Ratanavanh plays a bit with perspective as well--sometimes Miyuki appears quite small next to a giant frog and a big white rabbit. Eager young readers will find a kindred spirit in eager Miyuki."
