C.C. Warner cares about people and our environment. She is a mother of four, singer, songwriter, playwright, poet, artist and dental hygienist. In her hometown of Springvale, Maine, she gave thousands of sunflower seeds to schools, libraries, parks and flower shows.
She has appeared on TV to talk about the beautification of the towns and happiness it produces in the people. As a result, many people had golden gardens and stories to tell about their sunflowers. Many lessons were learned from gardening. Many hearts were filled with happiness. Hundreds of children sang her “Sunflower Song” in spring concerts. Her musical comedy, “The Sunflower Lady,” and CD are available for children’s theatre productions. The play calls for a cast of up to thirty-five children, ages 4 to 18. We hope America will get involved in making our country a place where big beautiful sunflowers grow. C.C. believes it is important for children to grow giant sunflowers. They can also learn to grow their big dreams and aspirations.
Claire Warner is C.C. Warner's daughter. She is a thirty-two year old graphic designer. In 2003 she read C.C. Warner's short story and knew that it needed to be told to the world! Over the years the book was developed along with the sunflower song music video.
