Youngsters and flower lovers of all ages will delight in this educational, accurately rendered coloring book of blossoming beauties.
Each page contains a letter of the alphabet along with a picture of the flower whose name begins with that letter. Graceful, long-stemmed daffodils frame the letter D, stately echinacea use the letter E as a trellis, and roses entwine the letter R. Additional florals include columbines, hibiscus, tiger lilies, morning glories, pansies, violets, and 17 other lovely varieties.
As a special treat, two pages display a magnificent flower garden that can be brought to life with a rainbow of colors -- from subtle pastel shades to brilliant hues.
In addition to illustrating books for Dover, Ruth Soffer has also done work for other major publishing houses. An artist specializing in natural science subjects, she lives in Brooklyn, New York.
