Wildflower Book

When I was having a chat with a little girl the other day, she shared with me that she didn't know what a buttercup looked like.  I was very surprised, but after thinking about it, realized that even in the country children aren't necessarily encouraged to learn about plants and insects.
My grandson who is turning 6 next week has shown an interest in gardening so I thought I would
make him a little book of 20 wildflowers . Hopefully, he will know what a buttercup looks like.
I enjoy the natural world so much that a life without much connection to it seems so empty.
