My Friends the Flowers by William Lach

One bee loves to visit his friends, who just happen to be flowers. He visits friends like Marigold who scares all the bugs, Sunflower who has a big happy face, Daffodil who nods his head, and even Impatiens who hang around the shady parts of town. From snapdragons and camellias, to prickly pears and forsythias, Bee introduces readers to the many flowers that add colour and character to our world. Doug Kennedy's anthropomorphized illustrations bring the text and flowers to life. And the back of the book includes photographs, a brief description of each flower and easy steps on how to plant three gardens (in containers and in the garden).
