“It’s about the wildflowers…”
Lily Katinka thinks she is the most beautiful flower in Dudley’s garden. But she’s rather worried because Dudley has allowed the end of the lawn to grow wild, and it seems so untidy!
Adding to her dismay, the ‘ugly weeds and scruffy grasses’ are getting a lot of attention from the bees and the butterflies.
What is so special about the bottom of the garden?
Lily Katinka has to find out …
I loved this beautifully illustrated children’s book about nature.
The book explains the need for wildflowers and how they naturally attract the bees and butterflies which is so important, especially in todays climate.
It is a lovely story to teach children the reasons why some of our green spaces are left looking wild and messy during the summer months – and may even have them wanting to take a look and see if they can spot butterflies and bees themselves!
