The Horn Book Guide, Fall 2009

"The large and vivid photos, clearly explained answers to many key questions, and manageable amounts of text make this a good choice for readers looking for a basic introduction to many aspects of flowers."

Denver Public Schools, April 20, 2009

"Each of the six books in this series provides great life science content in a versatile format. They might be read aloud to large or small groups, used in a center, or be a source of material for independent reading and research . . . The table of contents is easy to read . . . Each page includes a good mixture of photographs and simple text that clearly describes the illustrations . . . Not only will children learn about the subject matter but they will also gain independence in learning how to find information within a book."

National Science Teachers Association Recommends Web site, posted February 17, 2009

"These titles describe plant life and show how people and animals depend on it to survive . . . Beautifully detailed professional photographs of plants, animals, and people complement the subject matter."

School Library Journal, April 2009

"Large print, easily understood text and color photographs on every page will keep the attention of the young botanists . . . Although written for beginning readers, preschool and kindergarten teachers would find this book appropriate to share with nonreaders. This book along with its companion titles would make an excellent addition to elementary classrooms and school libraries."

Children's Literature

"Author Mary Dodson Wade does an excellent job delivering a lot of information about plants in a very kid-friendly way . . . By being easy to read, yet having lots of great information and interesting facts, the books fills a niche that is often difficult to fill in this age range."
