How do flowers grow?

Lift-the-flap first questions and answers
How do flowers grow?

  • How do flowers grow? Where do seeds come from? Why do leaves fall? Little children can find out the answers to these questions and more in this beautifully illustrated lift-the-flap book.
  • Each page asks a different question, such as “Why do plants have flowers?” The colourful illustrations, large and simple text and chunky flaps reveal the answers.
  • Children can discover a bee’s favourite flower, see inside a spiky conker shell and see how trees lose their leaves in winter.
  • A brilliant introduction to nature and science for curious young minds.
“Exquisitely illustrated, a delight to look at.”

Katie Daynes

Katie Daynes has written oodles of books for Usborne, from lifting the flaps on germs and poo, through things to spot in the sea and at school, to the life stories of Nelson Mandela and Marie Antoinette. She wrote My First Chess Book after being taught by her son, Joe Birks, who became the British Under 9 Chess Champion in 2017. She now lives in Yorkshire with her architect husband, two inquisitive children and a hamster called Toffee. When she’s not writing books, Katie likes walking on the blustery moors, meeting friends for coffee and playing competitive board games.

Press Reviews

This book is exquisitely illustrated, a delight to look at, it’s the sort of thing that really intrigues young children. But it’s also really informative. What it has is the correct science and at the level that’s right for its young readers - and it’s beautiful to look at.

This beautiful book provides an exciting and interesting opportunity to engage your little one’s natural curiosity in exploring nature and early science concepts.

The illustrations are typically colourful and fun, and like the other Usborne lift-the-flap books that we have at home, there is plenty to discover on every page.
