Brilliant and interesting photographs, simple diagrams, and a short, informative text are the highlights of this "Plant Parts" series, which features titles on flowers, leaves, and stems. The photography is exquisite, as each flower drips with dew or appears ready to be plucked from the page. We learn that cauliflower and artichokes are flowers and by seeing the photograph on each page, young readers easily learn these two big new words. There are photos of fruit beginning to grow in a pollinated flower— and a hummingbird sipping nectar from a flower. There is a very short index, a list of additional books, and a reference to the www.facthound.com web site with links to age-appropriate sites for each book. This is an outstanding series of concept books for new and pre-readers; the photographs make the book interesting enough to use with older children who struggle with reading and concepts.
