A young girl, Zinnia, works very hard throughout the year to grow her very own beautiful flower garden. This realistic, fiction text provides a step by step storyline for the process of gardening throughout the year. Factual information about the environment, bugs, seeds, and much more are provided in the margins throughout the book (i.e. The page talking about the weather provides four types of clouds seen in the sky and names them – stratus cloud/ cumulus cloud/ cirrus cloud/ nimbus cloud). Students are able to learn a variety of information about flowers (different types/ different parts of) from this book. Zinnia’s Flower Garden, takes an effective approach on the mixing of fiction and non-fiction into one book for students to understand.
