As a little girl I used to love going for walks with my Gran and looking at the wild flowers . We used to pick some and press them in my flower press and then make a scrapbook with all of their names. This is a lovely thing to do with children , especially now and all of the family can join the conversation via FaceTime too.
The book A Little Guide to Wild Flowers by the Eden project is perfect for this. Arranged in colour for speedy identification, with extra anecdotes from winsome characters in Charlotte Voake's inimitable style; this child-friendly guide also includes keynotes on plant parts and the seasons, along with a tick-box index for keen spotters.
The Eden Project brings plants and people together. It is dedicated to developing a greater understanding of our shared global garden; encouraging us to respect plants and protect them.It is on our list of family friendly places to visit.
