Presents an illustrated look at names for flowers in several languages that are used as personal names for girls.

Perseus Publishing
Many girls are named after flowers (or even forms of the word ?flower,” such as Flora). This inspired Linda Wolfsgruber to create this utterly charming book. Girls’ names in different languages accompany her imaginative illustrations of flowers, so that the reader discovers, for example, that Gul means rose in Turkish, but that it is Rosa in Spanish and Rodanthe in Greek.

Flowers named in the book include rose, heather, buttercup, sunflower, lily of the valley, daisy, bluebell, snowdrop, hyacinth, myrtle, camomile, cherry blossom, jasmine, violet, tulip, poppy?

This is a beautiful and intriguing gift book for anyone interested in girls’ names, flowers and the fine art of book illustration. But it can also be used in the classroom to talk about multiculturalism, language and botany.
