Take a peak inside
Written by Rinat Primo
Book available from August 2024
Every Friday, the children of Gun Meir kindergarten go to the playground on the corner of the street, where they play in the fields of grass filled with beautiful flowers. Of all the flowers, their favourite are the bright yellow dandelions. They put them in their hair and gently blow the seed heads, sending them fluttering in the fields like dandelion snow.
Wherever the seeds fall, new flowers will grow, their teacher tells them.
But one day, they discover that the playground has been closed so new homes can be built in its place. The fields have turned grey, and the flowers have all gone. Will they find a new way to spread the dandelion snow and bring life and colour back to their neighbourhood?
