In 2006, less than 50% of children were playing outdoors daily. Faced with this analysis, Sixtine asked herself: how can an interest and benevolence towards nature be awakened in children? How can we make them aware of the seasonal rhythms in the surrounding flora?

She has designed a «flower library» that can be kept indoors or replanted. Each kit contains everything you need to grow one of the eight plants: a flowerpot, dehydrated coco soil, seeds and an informative booklet. Made of wood and recycled paper, the kit unfolds in a poetic way and bears its flower. The child learns, practises reading and cultivates wonder with the passing seasons.
