Spot 50 Wildflowers covers 50 different wildflower species from white oxeye daisies and snowdrops to yellow marsh marigolds and primroses. Illustrations of each species are clearly labelled and accompanied by useful information and detailed fact files.

Useful and practical features in Spot 50 Wildflowers include:
• A mini picture reference and practical details, such as scale and actual size, to help children quickly identify different species.
• A wildflower species list for kids to tick off once they spot a species. This task gives kids the opportunity to 'collect' each species and record their progress.
• A brief glossary defining important vocabulary such as bulb, pollen and stamen, to ensure kids have a clear understanding of these scientific terms.
• An introduction to explain key concepts such as life cycles and seasons, the parts of a flower and pollination.

Discover amazing wildflower facts such as:
• Dandelions get their name from the old French name for the plant, 'dent de lion'. This means 'tooth of the lion' because the leaf edges look like a row of sharp teeth.
• Cornflowers were used in herbal medicine to treat eye problems, and young men in love often wore them in their buttonholes.
• Heather was once used as bedding for animals and bound together to make rope, brooms and thatch for roofs.
