About the Author

The Daffodils Still Grow was inspired by diary entries of the author/illustrator, Sherri Elizabeth Tidwell, after the death of her mother when she was 14. “My mother committed suicide when I was 14, and after nearly a year of crying and hurting, I was surprised -- almost shocked -- to see the daffodils she planted right before her death still bloom again. It was a big wake-up call to me that, even though she was gone, I could still carry on without her FOR her. Somehow, our loved ones still find a way of communicating with us when we need it the most." Sherri Elizabeth now attends Seton Hill University’s MFA program in Writing Popular Fiction. She has a BA in both communications and studio arts from Austin Peay State University. She hopes that every parent will know how irreplaceable and loved they are to their children and that every child who has lost a parent will know they are not alone. Remember, the daffodils still grow!

My Review:
This is a delicate subject that is hard for children to understand. I lost my dad six years ago and there are days that I miss him so much that it is hard for me to understand. This book is sad. It is true and it reminds us of all the things that we take for granted every day that our parents do with us. The pictures are not really sharp, but rather fuzzy like a dream or memory, and that is often how I remember my dad. Then the author does something beautiful. She reminds us that we come from our parents and they are always with them and that we can see them in ourselves. Be it a physical resemblance, the way we talk or the way we walk. They are always with us. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.

  1. I love the book cover and I think this is such a great way to express and explain a very important topic that is often difficult to address. Also, great review! This sounds like a book that I would definitely share with my kids when the time was right.
