3,5/5. Brief explanation of pollination all beautifully illustrated. I'm not sure this will reach a large public, but it's a decent enough introduction to the subject and easy enough to go in for young reader. Good!

"We sit here growing, minding our own business while you guys go on about how red roses stand for love and white ones are good for weddings and all kinds of mushy, ridiculous stuff. What a load of fertilizer!"

I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. My thoughts and opinions are my own. Any quotes I use are from an unpublished copy and may not reflect the finished product.

I loved this! We loved this! You'll love this (at least I hope you will)! Flower Talk was funny, wit

I learned some things about flowers with this book! beautiful illustrations and easy to understand facts. Would be good for an older story time and it could be interactive if you are looking for the cactus narrator on the page.

ARC Copy...lavish water colours beautifully portray the lessons and languages of flowers along side the humorous grumpy cactus's narration. Sure to encourage the kiddie's interests about nature.

Spiritedly told from the view of a loud purple cacti, FLOWER TALK, gives an overview of what certain colours mean to the birds, insects, and bugs they are trying to attract! Forget “red is for love!” Nah, red is for attracting hummingbirds and butterflies! Go beneath the petals and see what lies at the heart of colour attraction and learn what your garden is trying to tell you. Sara and Marsha perfectly craft a world that is perfect for science classes, those interested in STEM, and this interes ...more

Flower Talk by Sarah Levine is a cute read that teaches kids about the wonder of flower communication. The narrator is an adorably grumpy cactus who takes the reader through the pollination process. Next up is flower colours, and who they are communicating with. There are lots of neat facts in this short read! Like bees can't see red. How cool is that! My cubs and I read this together and we all enjoyed it. A great addition to any nature-loving child's library, or for use in classrooms. Recommen ...more
