Praise For…

“Counting one through 10, readers are introduced to 10n species of flower that, while not exclusive to, are native to the Pacific Northwest. The common and Latin names of each flower are included, as well as a description and beautiful illustration. . . . Whether used for practicing numbers, appreciating nature through art, or learning to identify wild flowers, Flowers by Number is a book to be enjoyed by parents and their children together.”  —Portland Book Review

“Watch as enamored children reach out to touch, smell, or even taste colorful flora. Part of the Little Naturalist series, author David Shapiro engages children with flowers and numbers in this delightful publication. Beautifully illustrated by Hayley Vair, each page displays a delicate flower that is distinguished by its locale, season, or number of petals.”  —San Francisco Book Review

“For a book about flowers and numbers, it’s ironic that my favorite page contains no flowers and the number zero. The text on the beginning page just cracks me up every time I read it.”  —NC Teacher Stuff
