Excerpt from The Burgess Flower Book for Children

Because of the story method of treatment, and also because of the limited vocabulary of the little child, the use of scientific names and even the names of most Of the parts of plants and ?owers, save in the appendix for older people, has been avoided. This necessarily prevents that accuracy of description which the adult may desire. The vast number of ?owers, which is America's rich heritage, makes it impossible to describe within the confines of a volume of this size more than a limited number. NO small part of the task was the selection of the?owers to be included. Most of them were chosen because of their wide distribution. For the most part, only the commoner ?owers, those most likely to be encountered in walks in field, meadow and woodland, have been chosen. A few of the rarer ones have been included because of their beauty, and the hope that the desire to find these may act as a stimulant to interest.
