The Boy Who Grew Flowers


This is a charming book about empathy and kindness and being yourself even (especially) when you’re different from others.

Quiet Rink always sits at the back of the classroom, away from the other children who have heard strange rumors about his family and prefer to keep their distance. But when a kind new girl joins his class, Rink’s life begins to change.

Inspired by the experiences of her brother, who is on the autism spectrum, Jen Wojtowicz’s heartwarming tale encourages children to empathize with and reach out to others.
