Published originally in 1910, this charming collection of flower poems and full-color illustrations animates the 82 flowers included in the book. From Crocus to Holly, the flowers are ordered in the book as each would appear throughout the year in a garden. Each illustration is half child and half flower, creating a wonderful way for children to see themselves in the natural world. 'All children are flowers in the garden of God's love. A flower is the mystical counterpart of a child. To the understanding heart a child is a flower and a flower is a child. God made flowers on the day that He made the world beautiful. Then He gave the world children to play amid the flowers. God has implanted in the breasts of children a natural love for flowers?and no one who keeps that love in his heart has entirely forsaken the land of childhood."?from the Foreword
