" Have you played the game where you look at the clouds and decide what they look like? Stockdale has turned the cloud game upon flowers - what do these flowers look like to you? Baboons, ballerinas or babies?! " said.

" Stockdale (Spectacular Spots, 2015) introduces 17 stunning flowers with boldly colored acrylic close ups and rhyming test. "Prim ballerinas, wild baboons, snakes standing guard, and spiraling spoons". End matter contains photographs of each plant, common and scientific names, native range and pollinators. Another page explains the pollination process. " said.

" Nice simple test for a read-aloud. Colorful illustrations of flowers. Back text with pictures of the flowers and some information about them. " said.

" Wow, this would be great as a resource for a building or artistic program. " said.

"The illustrations in this book are drawings of real life flowers, but they also look like other things. The author/illustrator has asked children to imagine the flowers as a parrot in flight, purses with flaps, fluttering bats, etc. They're almost like optical illusions.

The text is simple, and the colors in the drawings are vivid. It's almost laid out like a board book. The ARC was incomplete, so I couldn't get the full feel of the book, but I would guess it will appeal to children between ages 2-4.

The ARC did not contain much of the promised end notes either, but there were full color photos of the actual flowers, and Stockdale has done a terrific job of reproducing their likenesses in her illustrations. I would have liked to read some of the facts about the plants themselves.

" This unique and playful look at flowers will have kids looking for patterns in all sorts of other places. " said.

"Flowers that look like ballerinas? Baboons? A swaddled baby? Strangely enough it's all true and Susan Stockdale highlights seventeen flowers that look an awful lot like something else. It reminds me a bit of the cloud game, where you try to see things in the clouds, except with flowers. This is a great book to use to introduce children to plants and the amazing variety and the strange characteristics of flowers. In addition, Stockdale also gives a brief overview of pollination. Photographs are included at the end along with the official names, scientific names, and pollinators for each plant. A great book for teaching or just a fun introduction to amazing nature." said.

" King of like cloud watching but with flowers. Illustrations of flowers can be seen as other objects or animals. " said.
