The Dandelion's CousinGertrude Teutsch
This beautifully illustrated children's book was created out of Gertrude Teutsch's love for the hare thistle (genus Sonchus), a tall relative of the dandelion, which grew around her home.
As a gifted mother, teacher, and artist, she found a way of presenting the development of this plant to children through a delightful story-book. Her pictures and narrative enter imaginatively into the various stages and formations of the plant and bring them vividly alive.
This book will engender a love for and lively interest in nature -- a wonderful resource for parents as well as kindergarten and lower grades teachers.
