    Nice informative book - Easy reading

    I bought this book to read with my 5 year old son who had to do a book report on plants. So while it was above his reading level, he enjoyed the information I read to him and the illustrations are very well done.

    I am slowly discovering the wonderful world of non-fiction in children's literature. Who knew that there are so many informative and educational kid's books out there?

    One of the most interesting books I've found recently is Hungry Plants. It is an early reader level 4 book all about carnivorous plants. I read this to my daughter and she just loved it. Her favorite was the Venus Fly Trap, but she thought the other ones were cool, too.

    It is chuck full of great information about different kinds of insect eating plants. The illustrations are highly detailed and depict the makeup of the plants very well.

    I will admit that I don't have a very good way to check the facts presented in this book in any other way than to Google everything. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to do that. At any rate, I am giving this book a solid 5 STARS for being interesting, informative, and very educational.
