Follow your nose! This book invites you to learn what your sense of smell can teach you as you amble around town. Go along as a little boy listens to his dad’s tale about taking in the deliciousness of a pastry shop, the woodsy smells of a lumberyard, the nose-wrinkling stink of trash, the sweet scents of flower and fruit markets, and the freshness of spring on the way. You’ll agree when he says, “Everywhere I go, there is a new smell to know.” Then you can go exploring with your own nose!


Fragrant as a Flower is part of a set about the senses in theI Wonder Why book series, written to ignite the curiosity of children in grades K–3 while encouraging them to become avid readers. The series explores the marvels of the senses of smell, sight, hearing, and related phenomena.

Included in each volume is a Parent/Teacher Handbook with coordinating activities. The I Wonder Why series is written by an award-winning science educator and published by NSTA Kids, a division of NSTA Press.
