Age: 3 Year-olds | Title: There Is a Flower at the Tip of My Nose Smelling Me  |  Author: Alice Walker  |  Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

In a beautifully poetic and gently provocative text, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alice Walker invites readers young and old to see the world - and our place in it - through new eyes. Glowing colors and radiant images accompany this joyous celebration of the connections and interconnections between self, Nature, and creativity.

Dream-like illustrations greet the reader in this poetic book that encourages both children and adults to view the world in a different light. Sentences like, "There is water at the tip of my tongue tasting me," create a melodic tone while speaking simple truths about the connections between people and nature. The drawings are simply stunning with a surreal quality that complements the slightly off-beat text. Preschool-age kids will appreciate the story for its colorful drawings while adults will enjoy the elegant poems.

This book offers a change of pace from traditional cute children's stories and instead focuses on deeper meanings. Many of the nuances of this story may be lost on children but the simple beauty of the book is enough to hold a child's attention while introducing them to a more abstract way of thinking. Be prepared to answer questions while reading this gorgeous, thought-provoking story.

I read this story to Emily, the three-year-old I babysit, and she loved looking at the pictures and finding something relatable in them. She found that the little girl has rain boots and takes her dog for walks too. Emily's mother and I agreed that the story may be a little too deep for children to understand the meaning but that doesn't mean the kids enjoy it any less. The illustrations are more than enough to keep a child entertained until they are old enough to delve deeper into the story.
