Summary

After Lea is given a sunflower seed by her teacher, she becomes disappointed when all the other seeds planted by her classmates begin to grow, but not hers. Then, suddenly, the sunflower starts to grow, but this is no ordinary sunflower. This sunflower is not just any sunflower. This is a magical sunflower.

Out biggest achievement as parents is our kids, and every parent wants their child to learn, discover, and explore new things. Imagination is a big part of the way we learn and achieve. Lea’s Magic Sunflower story is about a little girl who is about to discover that amazing things can happen when you plant a seed and watch it grow.

This magical story is both written and narrated by Ann Twigg. It was written for her granddaughter, who was trying her best to grow a sunflower and who kept measuring it to see how tall it had grown. 

It’s important that children learn about nature and how to look after living things. By looking after plants, children can learn cognitive skills; build self-confidence; and, best of all, be outside playing, getting dirty, digging, using creativity, and watching things grow.

This is a lovely audiobook and a magical and exciting listening experience.

Help your child learn new skills through imagination and play. Buy now to get started today.

Good bedtime story to counteract a day full of scr

It was nice to listen to this story of Lea and the Magic Sunflower. With everyone at home at the moment, I’ve become more and more interested in getting my kids to listen to audiobooks. At least they are using their own imagination and making the pictures in their minds eye themselves. This is a nice story to get the ball rolling.

A story for kids that comes highly recommend.

I was looking for something a bit different and found it here. I wanted to find something that the kids would perhaps remember and want to hear again. We’ve since downloaded some of the other stories by Ann Twigg, but this is a good start.

The best things are worth waiting for!

Lea is taking part in a sunflower growing competition at her school but is very disappointed to find that her sunflower seeds are not growing like everyone else's. But Lea must learn to be patient, something very exciting is happening, her sunflower has magical powers! A wonderful story which teaches young children the importance of being patient and helps inspires a love of gardening.

A great short story to be enjoyed anytime

Thus story can be enjoyed anywhere at anytime and develops an appreciation for the great outdoors.

Lea grows more and more impatient and disappointed when her sunflower doesn’t appear to be growing but this is no ordinary sunflower! It’s delay is deserved as it’s worth the wait and bring her fame and happiness.

My kids liked the fact that the sunflower smiled at her and loved its magical powers. This could be used to develop children’s writing as they creatively decide which flowers have which powers.

It’s read well with Ann Twigg’s soothing, gentle voice. It’s perfectly pace and the plot develops well and is quite realistic and down to earth for a children’s book.

A charming tale

I have listened to this story with my 4 year old daughter and she keeps asking to hear it again. It's a lovely story promoting kindness and decent values which was a delight to hear from start to finish. I will be looking for more tales from this author.

Very much pleased on it

I can't review negative this audiobook. So pleasing. Best bed time audiobook for child. They love it to listen easily. Each parent likes to see their kid upbeat. My youngster was a lot of dependent in PC games and I was such a lot of scared of this. At that point, I present Ann Twigg's books as Christmas present and dispose of this issue. Much appreciated, creator.
