In a pocket-sized format, Fifty Favorite Texas Roadside Wildflowers is an indispensible aid to students desiring to identify Texas roadside wildflowers, for school projects or personal pleasure. Now teachers have a user-friendly resource to recommend to students for the wildflower project required by most Texas schools. Although intended for children, Fifty Favorite is also an excellent, easy-to-use resource for adults. This compact little book includes a wildflower identification fan to use as a field guide; flower family information, including habitat and pollinators; easy-to-use Observation Tools that teach a systematic approach to identification; a "season wheel" botanical drawing shows what the plant looks like in every season so that it does not have to be blooming to be identified. In conjunction with Fifty Favorite Texas Wildflowers, wildflower enthusiasts will also find curriculum enhancements online and websites for further study.
