Lach, William, Doug Kennedy. My Friends the Flowers. Illustrated by Doug Kennedy. Abrams Books for Young Readers. 2010. ISBN: 9780810983977
Have you ever thought about how many friends a bee would have? Well in the book My Friends the Flowers, you will discover all of a bee's friends. From flowers to cactus's, a bee always has someone to hang out with. The art work in this story is very bold and bright. To a kid, these pictures would catch their eye and they would want to keep reading! However, of you don't really like the story in this book, you can look in the back. The back of the book is filled with different types of flowers and information on how to grow them. This book would be a great book for younger children. In the book My Friends the Flowers, I personally liked the pictures in the book. The pictures were very fine and bright. It always kept me going to see what picture was going to come next. Although the book was a little young for me, I very much enjoyed it. The first page in the book really caught my attention. It was very bright and beautiful. It really brought you into the story and kept you wanting to read. I think kids between the ages of 4 and 7 would enjoy the book My Friends the Flowers. I think girls would like this book. Young ages would like this book as well for the pictures and the older ages would like this book for the interesting facts at the end.
