Nature All Around: Plants
Nature All Around: Plants is a beautifully illustrated book. The illustrations look like real-life plants. The book explains how a plant can protect itself as well as how it can grow. The diagram of the plant shows the many parts of a plant. Who knew plants were so complex? There are many plants that live all over the world in many different climates. Plants grow and change throughout each season. The best part of this book is the plant-watching pages that help reader to identify plants in their very own yard. You can tell a lot about plants by the shape of their leaves, their flowers, and their stems, but readers should be careful to watch out for poisonous plants. Readers should never taste any plants or fruit from plants. I found the insect-eating plants very peculiar, and that they get their energy from insects while other plants make their energy using the sun and water. Readers are sure to love learning all about plants. I know I did. The book also has a section with instructions on how you can grow your very own microgreens! Happy plant-watching!
