Product description


WINNER of the 2022 Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award!
Nominated for the 2022 Governor General's Literary Award for Young People
— Illustrated Text

A 2021
New York Times/New York Public Library Best Illustrated Children’s Book
A New York Public Library Best Book for Kids (2021)
A Toronto Public Library’s “First and Best 2021” Book Pick
Booklist Top Ten Picture Books Selection

"Thoughtful metaphors and diverse characters take viewers through the manifold dimensions of time. . . . This exuberant vehicle will expand the thinking of those just beginning to comprehend clocks and calendars."
—STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews

"A conceptual meditation, winsome and enigmatic."
—STARRED REVIEW, Publishers Weekly

"A fascinating way to think about the passage of time."

"[You’re] in sure hands with Julie Morstad, one of the most gifted artists making picture books today."
—Mac Barnett, author of The Wolf, The Duck, and the Mouse and the Shape Trilogy

"An exploration of the concept of time is a daunting premise for a children's book, but Morstad pulls it off with panache. Her warm, friendly renderings in pencil, marker and ink distill the book's abstract ideas . . . with ingenuity and simplicity."
New York Times

"Morstad’s crisp, fine-lined illustrations convey a hushed and wondrous tone. Her spreads are uncluttered and spacious, with grayscale pencil drawings of children and colors that pop off the page."

Time is a Flower is another elegant production from Julie Morstad’s endless imagination." Imaginary Elevators

“Morstad’s detailed images capture the movement of time from a child’s point of view, while giving readers of all ages a chance to reflect on the cycle of life.” Postmedia
