Aster, Bluebonnet, Columbine . . . The alphabet blooms in Diana Pomeroy’s striking illustrations, in which intricately carved and appliquéd potato prints become a beautiful bouquet of American wildflowers. Accompanied by a glossary of wildflower facts and blossoms of folklore, this is a perfect choice for nature lovers and for toddlers learning their ABC’s. “Using potato prints, acrylic paints, and appliqué, Pomeroy has created an alphabet of wildflowers not to be missed.”-Kirkus Reviews

DIANA POMEROY lives in Leaburg, Oregon.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K. A companion to One Potato (Harcourt, 1996), this lovely creation shows even more artistic accomplishment in its intricately detailed renderings of flowers that often look as though they have been pressed into the pages rather than stamped on them. Pomeroy has evolved the simple potato print of the preschool classroom into a unique art form that is all her own. The fine detail that she includes, her exceptional blends and shadings of color, and the rainbow palette of the borders result in a stunning presentation. Each full-page illustration is printed on a stark white background, the colorful border leaving a half-inch wide white band around it. The flower prints often twine around and over their colored borders, seemingly growing right off the page. The flower name and corresponding letter of the alphabet (capital and lowercase) are shown in large type. The final two pages include brief information about each flower. A book for beginning readers this is not; many of the appellations (some of them scientific names) are difficult to pronounce and will be unfamiliar to most youngsters. Buy the book anyway. Inventive parents and teachers will see it as a stepping-stone to art projects, nature lessons, and folklore. Flower lovers will delight in using it to teach the sounds of the alphabet: "R is for R-R-R-Rudbeckia."?Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
