Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Grab a notebook and a pencil and learn about plants just like scientists do—observe, take notes, make comparisons and carry out simple experiments. This book helps kids to find answers on their own—answers to such questions as "what is a plant" and "what do plants need to grow." Engaging color photographs on every page capture the excitement of children of learning all about the world of plants. Written by a former editor of children's science books and one who has academic degrees in biology, science and environmental journalism, this book is informative, accurate and engaging. Words defined in the glossary are highlighted in red and throughout special symbols alert readers when it is time to read directions very carefully or to ask an adult for help. The To "Find Out More" page lists books, places to visit and the publisher's website which can be used to track down more information on plants. An excellent addition to classroom and school libraries and a book that parents and younger kids will have fun sharing. 2004, Compass Point Books, Ages 6 to 8.
