This thoroughly delightful picture book demonstrates the value of small acts of kindness. Detailed black and white illustrations slowly give way to color as a young girl in red walks through the city hand-in-hand with her father. Distracted, he talks on his cell phone, but she is quite observant. She notices flowers growing in the cracks of sidewalks and walls and picks them while her father absentmindedly waits for her. She leaves her little bouquets with people and animals. By the end of the story, the little girl has spread flowers, color and happiness to everyone she encounters.
