Eleven-year-old Pita and her cat, Polo, have a plan to bring some sunshine into the lives of the people of her city. It begins in science class, where Pita realizes that while she may have dreams of traveling to other planets where everything is perfect, she needs to focus on reality. She must tell people that Earth is the only planet they’ve got, and they need to treat both it and each other with love and kindness. But what can a young girl do to spread this message of positivism? How can she convince people that helping others is an important responsibility? Inspired, Pita turns to one of her favorite things in the world—sunflowers. Join Pita as she uses sunflowers to teach her city about optimism and joy; see how Pita always looks for the good in people and the happiness in life, and she’s going to help everyone else do the same thing. A wonderful book for parents to share with their children, Pita and the Sunflowers will enchant kids and teach them an important lesson about compassion and social awareness.
