Timothy's Flower, Moneta Barnett

I have another nice mid century book for you today. Timothy's Flower is a sensitive account of how a small child who lives in an apartment in the city, brings back a flower from a visit to the park with his grandmother and makes friends with a grumpy tenant. Lovely illustrations by Moneta Barnett with a pleasing light color palette. I  like how just parts of the illustrations are colored and not everything is finished.
