About The Author:

Adelina Fabiano is a first generation Italian-Canadian. She has been a teacher for fifteen years, teaching children from kindergarten to high school. Throughout her time in the classroom, she has witnessed children struggle with low self-esteem and self-worth, which inspired her to write this book. She hopes her book will encourage empathy and acceptance and help build self-esteem from an early age.

The BookViral Review:

Low self-esteem and self-worth have long been popular themes in children’s books and The Perfect Dandelion is a delightful addition to the genre.

A gentle story that brings comfort and joy The Perfect Dandelion is especially fun to read out loud with Fabiano’s heartfelt prose tripping of the tongue whilst the illustrative talents of Santos bring a fresh and wholly original character to life.

Young children today are under increased social pressures and constantly bombarded with the opinions of others that can challenge their self-esteem. Sometimes children think they need to be more like someone else in order to have confidence and this is something Fabiano clearly gets across.

Developing confidence, self-esteem and a sense of self-worth enrich our lives and Fabiano’s story is perfectly pitched at young readers who are beginning to learn the value of friendships and how to interact with others their age. Not only nurturing confidence but sparking important conversations and encouraging children to reflect on their unique characteristics.

The illustrations that accompany Fabiano’s prose are delightfully vibrant, funny, heartfelt and honest. Though quite simple they never the less convey an extraordinary amount of emotion whilst the message Fabiano communicates is both sensitive and perfectly pitched for her young audience.

Inspiring, empowering, and poignant at the same time The Perfect Dandelion proves a genuine gem of a read and is recommended without reservation.
