From far away, this book looks like real flowers, but when you get closer you realize that it is not real. This reflects the nature of fortune telling, a practice that looks legitimate, but does not hold up under closer inspection. The paper flowers reflect the fortune tellers that children make. The inside of the fortune flowers has generic advice that apply to almost everyone.
