Ava’s Poppy By Julius Pfister Listen: https://youtu.be/kt9zmgq5sIk

Ava is delighted when she discovers a brilliant red poppy in the middle of her yard. She sits with the little flower in the sunny days of summer and shields it from the rain, until one day the petals start to drop and the tiny flower fades away. Ava is sad and remembers her poppy. Ava marks the place where her poppy grew before winter comes. When spring comes again . . . Ava is surprised anew. (For all ages)
