Peterson First Guide to Wildflowers of Northeastern and North-central North America (Paperback)


Lots of books include glossaries, but this book goes a bit farther: it has a pictoral glossary. Instead of just definitions of the parts of flowers, you’ll find pictures of them. The glossary of the leaves, for example, provides simple illustrations of clasping, stalkless, perfoliate, toothed, lobed, and other types of leaves. Each of the 188 wildflowers in this field guide is beautifully illustrated, and to make it easier to identify the flowers in the field, the parts of the flowers (and leaves) have arrows pointing to them so a reader doesn’t have to guess at the parts. Also, in addition to the illustrations, the guide includes the physical description of the plants as well as some of its history. Ages 11 and up
