Juno review of Tom’s Sunflower

The latest in the Copper Tree Class series, Tom's Sunflower is about helping children come to terms with difficult situations. Hana is feeling sad because her mum and dad are splitting up and going to live in different places.

Mr. Davis, the teacher, tells the class a story about a boy called Tom whose parents split up and how he learned to understand that he could make new friends in new places and that it wasn't his fault. Tom's teacher had shown him how to plant a sunflower to remember that he would always grow on both sad and happy days. Guess who Tom grew up to be...

This is a very simple but supportive book with elements to help children with different issues that might make their tummies feel "wobbly".
