The story is about a family who plant an orchid plant and they take good care of it. They water it, make sure it is well looked after but it doesn't flower. Even as the children grow older, they continue to hope that if they keep looking after it, it will eventually bloom. But does it ever flower?? You'll have to read it for yourself to find out! I don't want to put any spoilers in here!
I liked the book because the story is really positive, it shows that you shouldn't give up on something which doesn't develop at the same pace as others, it also shows the lovely tender way a family can have a tradition which brings them together. I loved how looking after the plant bonded the siblings well into their older years. I also like the way it is written too; because it's set in Puerto Rico there are several words which are used within the diaolgue which makes this story authentic and I love the atmosphere of the place; the heat, the exotic fruit... really paints a lovely picture.
My daughter said she enjoyed the book because she wanted to know if it would ever flower and she didn't want me to stop reading until she found out! She said she also liked the fun things the children were doing - playing with horses etc.
I think this is a really beautiful story that children and grownups can enjoy together.
