Grade 5 Up --A wealth of technical information about plant pollination is presented in the beautiful flowery style found in Robert Crowell's The Lore & Legends of Flowers (1982) and Dowden's State Flowers (1987, both Crowell). There is a logic in the presentation that honors and supports the order and magnificence of nature. The color drawings are superb in the trueness of their color and in their exquisite detail. Their placement perfectly matches the text, and they are a key ingredient in the book's success. The major portion of the book is divided into three sections that present an overview of pollination. First, Dowden explains the flowers themselves, then the animals who bring about pollination, and finally she gives a description of the partnerships. A tribute to the chain of life and the delicate web of dependencies concludes the volume. Sophisticated and often technical, this book is worth the time and effort it demands to open this awe-inspiring and intricate part of the natural world to the eyes and minds of readers. --Steve Matthews, Foxcroft School, Middleburg, VA
