" The Reason for a Flower by Ruth Heller explores why plants have flowers, and who pollinates them. The book’s short amount of text on each page makes this book appropriate for children as young as toddlers, even though it includes a good deal of vocabulary. Don’t be afraid to use big words with young children. They are often able to get the concepts and it shows that you value them as intelligent and capable individuals which, or course, they are. " said.

"I enjoyed this book a lot! It felt like I was reading a poem the entire time, but I was also learning something; I thought that was a really creative way to put information out there for the reader. I also liked how the author not only told the reader the reason for a flower, but she also told us why flowers are important (or what we use everyday that is made from flowers). I think children would enjoy this book because it isn't your typical informational book. It has flow and rhythm similar to a poem, but it provides plenty of information." said.

"We recently finished Ruth Heller's World of Language series, so now we are working our way through her World of Nature series.

This was a gorgeously illustrated book about plants, flowers and seeds. The rhyming narrative seemed to falter a bit, but perhaps that was just because we stopped so many times to point out the fascinating details in the illustrations. Overall, I thought it was an interesting book and taught a little bit of science without being overly detailed or boring. We really enjoyed reading this book together.

This book gives young students information on the natural process that flowers go through. It tells them that a flower pollinates and something a flower changes into a fruit, vegetable, or grain. It also shows them what animals typically feed on in regards to flowers and weeds. This book can be beneficial to my students because it allows students to learn about the science behind nature and the circle of life in a fun, rhyming way. As a follow up activity, I could give my older students a print out of a flower and ask them to label which parts of the flower they remembered from the book. To my younger students, I could ask them to draw something that they use or like to eat in their own life that was made from a type of plant. The first activity challenges a child's memory and also allows them to be aware of the parts of the flower and its functions. The second activity reaches into a child's personal life and allows them to realize the importance of plants and flowers in our daily lives.
