Detailed step-by-step instructions and illustrations for making a range of lively, creative flower figures. Many of the figures are recognisable from Elsa Beskow’s books and from Sybille von Olfers’ ‘The Story of the Root Children’.
Activities are organised by season, making the book ideal for decorating a nature corner or seasonal table in the home or classroom.
The author, Sybille Adolphi, was born in Stuttgart in 1953. She has been a kindergarten nurse and a teacher in a special-needs school. She is married with two children.
Review:'The instructions are very easy to follow, for older children with a little help. These small figures would make a great addition to seasonal tables; the Autumn section is especially nice, the toadstool children with red fly agaric hats are lovely.' — Hilary Woolf with Isaac (age 5), Education Otherwise
