A Flower is a Friend

We rated this book:


A Flower is a Friend shows on each page a flower, along with something—an insect, animal, reptile, spider, bird, etc.—that helps the flower in its own way. At the bottom of each page is a question for the reader to answer about the thing that helps the flower, an example being “Why would a mouse sleep in a tulip?” There are twelve flowers shown in the book, with twelve helpers/friends who maybe eat bugs, spread pollen, or clean to help pollinate the many flowers in the world.

The pictures of the flowers are close up and pretty. I didn’t know about many of them before reading how A Flower is a Friend. I found the questions at the bottom of each page to sometimes be hard to answer out loud because there are only three or four words per page, which describe something about what a flower does, so there is no extra information given to answer the question if you don’t already know the answer. In the back of the book is more information to answer each question.

Because there aren’t many words in the whole book, kids of all ages will understand what they are reading or being read.
