Praise for Flowers

"With more than 170 published titles to her name, Gibbons is one of children's nonfiction's most prolific author/illustrators. In her latest, she artfully details the parts of flowers for young readers. Almost every page is covered in an efflorescence of multiple colors. Similar to From Seed to Plant, yet so much more informative and visually provocative, Gibbons displays the variety of colors, shapes, seeds, climates, environments, and necessary visitors (insects) that the accompany the subject. Ending with a signature trivia page, this work includes info on which flowers have been assigned to specific birthday months and other interesting facts. . . . A good choice for elementary nonfiction collections."—School Library Journal "Jam-packed with illustrations rendered in black ink, watercolor, and colored pencil and extensively labeled . . . a visual feast."—Booklist
