Have you ever seen a plant that is covered in hairs? Striking captioned, close-up photographs, including those of the appropriately named woolly lousewort, a pollen-dusted honeybee, and a germinating seed, complement accessible diagrams of plant anatomy. Each titled spread, such as “Not Just for Eating!” and “Dropping, Shaking, and Bursting,” covers a different aspect of the topic. Text boxes provide additional context and fascinating information (did you know scientists were able to germinate 32,000-year-old seeds that were discovered frozen deep in ice in Russia?). Two hands-on activities help readers gain a comprehensive view of the material. Back matter contains a glossary, book and Web-site suggestions for further reading, and an index.

School Library Journal

Series Review
Vivid photo close-ups with captions show amazing, diverse plant life, and adaptations worldwide. The books discuss how plants have evolved efficiently to carry out specialized tasks, such as photo-synthesis, energy and water transport, reproduction, and seed dispersal, and how they have interacted with their environments, including animals, to achieve these goals. Thinking and question prompts encourage students to reflect upon the content, including how people use plants. Each book includes two hands-on experiments for readers to try out, with step-by-step instructions that are illustrated in photos and can be modified for use in early childhood classes. Suggestions for places to visit are offered, too.
