With a daughter at college away out west in the Rockies, we ordered this book for when we visit from the east coast. It is a slim packable guide that is as simple and enjoyable for adults as it is for kids. It is organized by color... a section on yellow flowers, a section of white flowers, etc. using their common names with pictures and descriptions. At the end of each colored section there is a page to record where you have seen or discovered the flowers for that section. So, if you are taking a group of children on a hike, each child may want his own copy to record his discoveries. There are also 2 different flowers (of same color)per page so a child could compare/contrast the flowers by shape, petals, etc while on a discovery hike. References at the end are also given for further study. Nice book for fieldtrips or nature studies!

Last summer my wife and three young children spent six weeks in Grand Lake, Colorado while I stayed at home and worked. While they were there they spent many days on hikes wandering around meadows looking at wildlife and wildflowers. One weekend I brought this book to them, and they spent their time outdoors looking up and identifying flowers in this book.

The book is organized by flower color, so searching is a breeze. In the end, this book brought a good deal of education to the kids' outdoor exploration.

Good generally but use other reference books also. I noted one of the flower -- the Colorado state flower perhaps?? -- was listed in another reference book (Wildflowers of Colorado Field Guide) as extremely poison -- all parts -- but this fact was not mentioned in this guide for kids.

Lovely photos, organized by color, that uses common names - my granddaughter will love this! The author also has a compilation CD available for the wildflower enthusiast of all ages.
