Sharon Lamar's recently published book, Mountain Wildflowers for Young Explorers: An A to Z Guide, is a user friendly field guide with vibrant, detailed watercolor illustrations along with precise descriptions of each flower’s key characteristics and habitat. The life-like watercolor paintings depict 26 flowers common to Western mountains and valleys, one for each letter of the alphabet. An illustrated glossary provides information needed to help children successfully identify wildflowers. Also included is the connection of each wildflower to one of the many Indian tribes of the North American West. This fun and fascinating book is sure to inspire both kids and adults to get outside in search of beautiful buds and blossoms.
