Beautiful illustrations in this picture book about flowers. Rhyme is mixed in with non fiction which will appeal to many readers.

A great book for making connections and drawing parallels with life and characters from other books. Also fun for point of view.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
We will read this book a few times this year as a mentor text in writer's workshop, reader's workshop and during character education.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
An interesting chapter book that will have readers asking questions and making connections.


Image result for The Boston Girl  I have also read The Boston Girl, by Anita Diamant.  This is for parents and my high school friends.  It was a quick and easy read.  I enjoyed the story from the narrator's perspective and it was fun to read about Boston in the 1920s.!
