The books are written especially for pupils who have a special, focused interest. These pupils may prefer to engage with materials related to that interest, to the exclusion of others.


All the Sunflower books are about a character called Pat. Pat can be anyone or anything that appeals to the child – a cat, a train, a Lego figure, a unicorn… anything. The grey space on each page is waiting for a picture of the child’s chosen idea of ‘Pat’. Source and print out pictures of ‘Pat’ for the child to place on the book as they read.



I recommend you use a high quality paper at least 100gsm weight.

Check your printer settings to ensure the pdf prints centrally.

I recommend you do a test run of the first two pages back-to-back in black and white.
