9780060286217: Fran's Flower

One day Fran found a flowerpot filled with soil. "I will grow this flower," Fran said. "Grow flower." But the tips stayed tiny.

Fran is determined to get her flower bud to grow. But what do you feed a fussy flower? Fran figures that the flower will flourish on her own favorite foods--pizza, spaghetti, even strawberry ice cream! But the stubborn bud refuses to bloom. Finally, Fran discovers that a meal fit for a girl isn't necessarily a meal fit for a flower. Just when she gets fed up, Mother Nature steps in  with a smorgasborg of sunshine and rain...Won't Fran be surprised!

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-When a little girl finds a flowerpot filled with soil and a tiny green sprout, she announces to her comical pup, Fred, "I will grow this flower." She watches it every day, feeding it all her favorite foods-pizza, cheeseburger, spaghetti, chocolate chip cookies, and strawberry ice cream. The astonished pet watches as she even offers up one of his juicy bones. Finally, when nothing happens, she throws the plant outside in disgust: "Silly flower!" There, nourished by soft rain and warm sunshine, the tiny plant begins to grow and one day surprises Fran with a big, beautiful flower. The expressive, full-page illustrations rendered in creamy primary and pastel colors on textured paper depict the small girl's misguided efforts as well as her ultimate delight. Right on target for a young child.
