Always double check the "Buy" price and not the "Prime" price prior to clicking on the yellow button for purchasing.
Don't have a Kindle? No worries! Download a free Kindle reading app to use on your smartphone, tablet or computer. Or, purchase a Kindle Fire to maximize your e-book reading experience.
Funky Flowers 4-in1
 The Funky Flowers 4-in-1 collection by author Funky Flowers consists of two alphabet books, one counting book and one book about shapes. The counting book teaches children how to count up to 20. Hand-drawn illustrations are supposed to show up on a regular Kindle, but are better when viewed in color.
