Flower Book Roundup

This week we will be reading about, examining, and experimenting with flowers. Stepping outside, for a walk or gong to the park, lawns everywhere are dotted with sunny yellow dandelions. Striking purple violets are emerging through the sidewalk cracks. Everywhere in a child's world vibrant flowers are making their presence known.  (Our favorite is at the bottom!)
