Flowers -- Fiction

Miss Fancy likes to ask for this great alphabet book by author; "Anita’s book!", she’ll say. We sure can recommend this beautifully illustrated arrangement of flowers to contemplate just in time for spring. For us it is a very important work that ensured little girl learned to say Auntie Olga for her Auntie Olgas very early! Since not every family is as knee deep in Olgas as us... maybe you’ll just be pleased to hear your own kid take to the word begonia, daffodil or urtica?

I love this book. The pictures would look so cute framed up in my little girls' room.

When she gets a bit older, you can move on to "The Z was Zapped" by Chris van Allsburg!
