"This enchanting book draws young and adult readers into the world of flowers and all the creatures with which they co-exist. The photography is spectacular, the facts are intriguing, the quizzes are mind provoking, and the narration is gently engaging. The message of conserving nature is consistently presented over the volume." Joan Pennell said.
"If I had a school aged child I'd be sure to buy every book in the series by Annette Meredith. Her books are amply illustrated, bulging with information in a pleasing, organized format, and she always emphasizes the interconnection in nature of all living things, the links that connect them, and the importance of maintaining those links.
Meredith's Secret World of Flowers follows the tradition of her previous books with so much information packed into 36 pages. Her chosen photographs are not only beautiful but serve to illustrate and amplify the information conveyed in the text. Even this well aged reader learned a few things, such as the variety of insects that help pollinate flowers and fibonacci numbers.
As you read this book, you can't help but think about how everything in nature, no matter how small, has a purpose. The symmetry and design of flowers is so intricate and complex, it's difficult to believe the design just happened by itself.
Bottom line - A beautiful book informative and pleasing to the eye.
Note - Despite not seeing potato flowers or sweet potato vines, I am impressed by Annette's latest." Spudman said.
"As a former homeschool mom, I would have LOVED to have this book when my kids were younger! It has a wide variety of information on different aspects of flowers, is quite educational, with LOTS of colorful photographs. I handed this to my 19 year son who graduated from our homeschool and he had a hard time putting it down because he found it so interesting. I will be recommending this entire series of books to all of the young mothers I know - and probably buying a few for my own grandchildren." Ramona Mom said.
"I love this book. It is written and illustrated so beautifully. I would highly recommend it to everyone." Lisa Swanson said.
"Beautiful book. Very informative and done in a delightful easy to read way, with fabulous pictures of flowers, butterflies, caterpillars and showing the whole eco system that survives in our own backyard. I learned a lot, thanks!" Judy Sharman said.
"Great book! Enjoyed by kids and adults! Great photos and everyone can learn something!" Diane Stahl said.
