Flowers and Friends

by Anita Holmes

Benchmark Books, Marshall Cavendish, New York. 2001


Flowers and Friends
 describes the close relationship between flowers and the animals necessary for their pollination. In their search for food, bees, wasps, moths, butterflies, hummingbirds, and even bats transfer pollen from one flower to another. 

Readers will be fascinated to learn the mechanisms these creatures use to extract nectar from the flowers. For instance, bees and wasps use their long tongues to sip nectar while butterflies have long, straw-like tubes for the purpose. 

Plenty of science here, but lots of fun, too!
