A simple story to celebrate Spring that conveys information about growth and is set in modern multicultural Australia.
When Tom’s next door neighbour Mr Yilmaz gives him a gift of a daffodil bulb, the boy can’t believe it is a flower. To him it looks like an onion. Time passes and Mr Yilmaz often asks Tom “How’s the daffodil?” Each time, the plant has grown a little but it still doesn’t look like a daffodil and Tom has lots of imaginative ideas about what it resembles.
