From the creator of the New York Times bestseller Women in Science, comes a new nonfiction picture book series ready to grow young scientists by nurturing their curiosity about the natural world–starting with what’s inside a flower.
Budding backyard scientists can start exploring their world with this stunning introduction to these flowery show-stoppers–from seeds to roots to blooms. Learning how flowers grow gives kids beautiful building blocks of science and inquiry.
In the launch of a new nonfiction picture book series, Rachel Ignotofsky’s distinctive art style and engaging, informative text clearly answers any questions a child (or adult) could have about flowers.
“The lush, geometric illustrations are the superstars of this adventure, drawing in readers from the front endpapers to the rear . . . A beautiful bloom for the nature shelf.” – Kirkus Reviews
“There’s an abundance of detail in this attractive first work in the “What’s Inside” series, but it’s never overwhelming . . . The pages overflow with life.” – Booklist
The illustrations in this book are truly amazing. They are full of deep rich colors that match the tone of the book as each page goes into the smallest detail of what makes a flower and what’s inside. I love to garden and know most of the science behind flowers and their purpose but this explains everything in easy to understand terms that even a small child can relate to. This is a book that will grow with a child and they can use it as a reference book. It should inspire everyone to plant a seed and watch it grow.
What sets this book apart from a lot of early readers is that it goes through ALL of the steps nature goes through to produce that flower. From the composition of soil to sun and water, even the worms are noted and easy to understand. I can easily see this book inspiring children to start their own flower from seed. A perfect adventure that can be done on any sunny window sill.
