Who Wrote The Reason for a Flower

author & illustrator
Ruth Heller

After receiving a fine arts degree from the University of California at Berkeley and completing two years of graduate work in design at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, <b>Ruth Heller</b> (1923-2004) began her career designing wrapping paper, cocktail napkins, greeting cards, and coloring books. After five years of rejection and one complete revision, Heller’s first book, <i>Chickens Aren’t the Only Ones</i>, about egg-laying animals, was published in 1981. It was so successful that the sequel, and second book to be published, <i>Animals Born Alive And Well</i> (1982), about mammals, quickly followed. In 1983 and 1984, her third and fourth titles, <i>The Reason For A Flower</i> (about plants that have seeds and flowers) and <i>Plants That Never Ever Bloom</i> (about plants that do not) were published.
