Lulu Loves Flowers by Anna McQuinn, illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw

Inspired by her book of poems, Lulu sets out to make a flower garden like Mary, Mary Quite Contrary. Lulu picks the seeds she wants and waits for the flowers to grow. Her mum and dad help her with the project. Dad helps her hang shells over the flower bed and mum helps her make a flower sketch book.

The book is a nice introduction to living things that children can create in the space available to them. It can also be used as a good starting point to discuss how plants reproduce, and the different parts that make up a flower.

Why not read this book to your little ones and then take them to the garden centre and create your very own flower garden.
