Synopsis

A Child's Guide to Wild Flowers by Charlotte Voake

Arranged in colour for speedy identification, with extra anecdotes from winsome characters in Charlotte Voake's inimitable style; this child-friendly guide also includes keynotes on plant parts and the seasons, along with a tick-box index for keen spotters. The Eden Project brings plants and people together. It is dedicated to developing a greater understanding of our shared global garden; encouraging us to respect plants - and protect them. Wild flowers grow everywhere. They pop up between cracks in city pavements or on grass verges, and bloom alongside motorways. With over a hundred lively and exquisite illustrations as their guide - and with help from Charlotte Voake's quirky characters offering memorable snippets of fact and folklore - young children can learn to name the wild flowers they see every day, wherever they may be.
