The author compares the world to a garden. In this garden are flowers of all different colors, shapes and sizes.  It takes each and every flower to make this garden beautiful.  But, even in the most beautiful of gardens, weeds will sometimes grow.  Weeds are not good for the other plants trying to grow.  And sometimes, it is hard to tell the difference from the flowers and the weeds.  But it is a good thing to know the difference, and to pull out the weeds, so that the flowers may bloom and grow in a wonderful garden, free of the weeds. The artist has placed a small "bad weed" in each illustration for the child to find.

The same can be said for people. The world is filled with wonderful and beautiful people in all shapes, colors and sizes. But sometimes, we can meet someone who isn’t so nice. It may be hard to know when someone is not nice … at first. But, if they don’t feel comfortable around someone because of his or her actions, children need to be encouraged to talk to their parents. And parents need to promise to always be there to listen. The book ends with a "promise page" for both parent/guardian and the child to sign.

Excellent book to be read to children

Every parent needs to read this book to their younger children to alert them to the dangers of child predators. It is so sad that we have to even worry about these things, but it is a fact of life these days.
