Book Review - Flowers by Number

About the Book
Flowers by Number is a traditional number book -- with a twist! Count flowers, count petals, count stems, count staments! Flowers by Number counts to ten while introducing wild flowers to the someday botanist or flower appreciator. From skunk cabbage to lupine, this flower journey has something for everyone from the playful youngster to the nature enthusiast. Entertainingly written, each page includes the common and Latin names of the flower, as well as some attributing description. The beautiful colorful illustrations are helpful in learning to recognize and identify the flowers.

My Take on the Book
David Shapiro has written an informative counting book using different beautiful flowers for the counting theme. He relates specific information about each type of flower in addition to using the numerals to count the flowers. David includes the scientific name for the flowers also.

Haley Vain illustrated this counting book with the specific flowers. She added details so the flowers appear like a photograph. You and your child will enjoy looking at her lovely drawings as you read this book.

I think you will agree this is a very special nature counting book for a young child.
