The Reason for a Flower

The Reason for a Flower

by Ruth Heller Illustrated by Ruth Heller

The reason for a flower is to manufacture seeds, but Ruth Heller shares much more about the parts of plants and their functions in her trademark rhythmic style..

"With stunning illustrations, Ruth Heller explains the different parts of a flower, pollination, and growth, using a rhyming text. One rarely finds such richness in a book at the low cost of Heller's extravagantly beautiful creation." — Publishers Weekly
