Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2018 December)

PreS-Gr 1—Vibrant, full-page photographs introduce young audiences to the beauty of an array of different flowers. The simple text begins with sprouting seeds and proceeds to show the growth of buds, stems, shoots, and blossoms. Along with the many plants, a variety of small animals are also included. From woodlands to deserts to meadows to forests, each flowering landscape is presented in total glory. The large format allows the images to shine and is perfect for group and lap reading. The repetition of "Bloom Boom" throughout also makes this ideal for read-alouds. Although neither the specific flowers nor their locations are identified within the main narrative, an appendix gives a more thorough explanation of the featured flora and provides some additional information which may be shared with young listeners. VERDICT A lovely, useful work to help acquaint children with the natural world, and an enriching selection for storytime.—Eva Elisabeth VonAncken, formerly at Trinity-Pawling School, NY
