    1. I loved all the many flower characters in this book, it was really fun to read with my child (who is 3 but into flowers just like me). I liked how all the flower characters were portrayed botanically accurate. The little sub stories told by the birds were cute too. A good choice for flower lovers like myself! I especially liked how the wild flowers were included, not just the common garden plants.


    2. The art in the original editions is wonderful; this version isn't bad but it's lost something in the reprinting. The botanical theme makes this a lovely book to read to children during the gardening season, especially if they are familiar with even a few of the plants mentioned in the story. Classifying the flowers as royalty, common people, and rabble is outdated, but it's also reality as kids might see it. Today we have celebrities (who are often treated like royalty) and the "bad guys" as wel [...]


    3. This story of a young girl permitted to spy on the festival the flowers hold in her grandmother's garden at Midsummer includes lovely pictures and entertaining yarns about the different types of flowers. It does reflect a slightly uncomfortable amount of classism for modern tastes, with more royal flowers waited upon by servant flowers and animosity toward rowdy disshevelled weeds barely content to observe the festival from just outside the garden. While the flowers are lovely and I like the sto [...]


    4. A very sweet tale of a girl at Midsummer who was unable to go to any parties. Instead the Midsummer Fairy puts a couple of drops of poppy juice in her eyes to give her the ability to see all the flowers and vegetables having their festival.It's very sweet and simple with beautiful illustrations. The only thing that really caught my attention was the poppy juice. So this little girl is going to go on a crazy trip in the summer? I guess so. It's not like the children reading this story will know a [...]


    5. Lovely, enchanting way to learn the name of flowers and to recognize them. The story is wonderful and the illustrations so quaint. My five year old class really enjoy it.
