about

Balancing child-friendly facts with colorful illustrations, this perfect introduction to plants is sure to inspire the budding naturalist in every child.

From crowded cities to open prairies, deserts to wetlands, plants grow everywhere! This comprehensive introduction will open children''s eyes to the plants that surround them every day and how important they are to life on our planet. It covers the basics of plants, such as their parts, life cycles and growing zones. Then it takes readers on a season-by-season tour of what a plant-watcher can expect to discover throughout the year. There are sections on strange plants and those that are endangered, and how readers can help. And for hands-on experience, there''s an interactive Q&A for learning how to identify plants, and an activity for growing your own plants.

With the perfect balance of child-friendly facts and colorful illustrations, this book encourages children to actively engage with the natural world. Bestselling and award-winning author Pamela Hickman covers all the essential science about plants --- including photosynthesis and pollination --- in clear and easy-to-digest text. And Carolyn Gavin''s colorful illustrations bring it all to life, with accurate and inviting representations of the information.

Rounding out its usefulness are a full-spread growing zone map, an index and a glossary.
