For anyone of any age who has ever daydreamed about times gone by when walking in the woods or down a back alley of an old town or past a dilapidated house, this book will soothe sad feelings, warm the heart and gift the sunshine of daffodils.

On a wlk one day, a girl and her parents find a field of daffodils. Wondering how they got there, they find a chimney and foundation. They imagine how life would have been in the house. Going back through time, a normal family was living there. Now this place is home to just animals.
This was not one of my favorite books. It took a while to understand what was going on. If your child has a vivid imagination, this is a good book for them. The illustrations are beautiful.

I like the premise of this story. Looking at the remains of a house and thinking about the family that used to live and work there. Two things about this book bothered me - the little boy was named Timmy on one page and Tommy on another page. At the end, the story tells of the honeysuckle vine comvered chimney, but the illustration shows a morning glory vine covered chimney. Little things like this bug me and someone should have caught it before the book was published.
