Flowers Are Calling Kindle Edition
In this rhyming poetic picture book, explore the wonders of natural cooperation between plants, animals and insects. Flowers Are Calling by Rita Gray and illustrated by Kenard Pak is "a sophisticated blend of scientific information and artistry" (Publishers Weekly).
Flowers are calling to all the animals of the forest, "Drink me!"—but it’s the pollinators who feast on their nectar.
In rhyming poetic form and with luminous artwork, this book shows us the marvel of natural cooperation between plants, animals, and insects as they each play their part in the forest's cycle of life.

One review mentioned there's a lot of text for younger kids, but I think it depends on the individual child. My daughter is almost 2.5yo and loves long story books (like We're the Gardeners). I don't think this books text will be an issue for her.
Another review mentioned it was sort of confusing to read as they've intermingled animals who pollinate vs ones that don't, and the way it's worded throughout the book is strange. I agree with the other reviewer in the approach of something like "Oh look, a family of rabbits are hopping through patches of violets! Do rabbits help to pollinate violets? No, but there's also bee flies flying around the violets to pollinate them. " Basically, I'll be re-writing the book so it flows a little better for when I read it to my daughter.
I have always admired Kenard Pak's artwork, and Rita Gray's simple rhyming text makes this a gorgeous book to read to little ones. My 2 year old loves to sit and listen to this book.
