Staff Reviews


I love, love, love children's books: I think they're great for grown-ups to read when they forget the little wonders of this life. Especially those with amazing pictures. Extra for books that are secretly educational. (This one is, but I won't tell if you don't). This book checks all of those boxes and more. It's a sweet story, perfect for this time of year when everything is in bloom and the critters are waking up. Go ahead, get lost in the illustrations and you can learn a little too!

Description


Flowers are calling to all the animals of the forest, "Drink me!"—but it’s the pollinators who feast on their nectar. In rhyming poetic form and with luminous artwork, this book shows us the marvel of natural cooperation between plants, animals, and insects as they each play their part in the forest's cycle of life.

Praise For…


"Pak's pretty, digitally worked watercolors achieve equilibrium between stylized reduction and naturalistic verisimilitude."
—Kirkus

"A sophisticated blend of scientific information and artistry."
—Publishers Weekly

"Beautifully subdued watercolor and digital media illustrations, at times reminiscnet of Jon Klassen's work, will draw readers into the text about symbiotic relationship between flowers and their pollinators."
