Description: This excellent plant guide for children aged 7+ describes over 100 common British wild flowers. The book information is compatible with the guidelines of the primary school curricula in the UK, with extra chapters on parts of a plant and a flower, pollination, fertilisation, seed dispersal and plant families. The plants are arranged primarily by habitat, basically woods with hedgerows to seaside, gardens, parks and countryside, and the description of each species is divided into three sections: general information, flower/fruit and leaves/stem. In addition, the plants are arranged by colour in the Flower Colour Index, providing an extra tool to assist identification. The layout is colourful and engaging, using snappy symbols for height, type of pollination, Caution! sign, and the main flowering season to aid identification even further. The book is pocket sized to easily take it out and about, such as walks, school trips and holiday.
