How Plants and Trees Work

A Hands-On Guide to the Natural World

Written by Christiane Dorion, Illustrated by Beverley Young

Packed with interesting bits of information on fun pop-ups, flaps etc. After reading this I was googling many of the different plants to see the exploding seed pods or watch the touch me not plant. Very fascinating! Also good to know my neighbor grows the most poisonous plant in the world in his front yard. Students will love this book to pieces, so it may not be a good choice for general check out. Teachers can use this with plant lessons or to teach the kids to research information after reading as I did.

Review by Jessica Riggs, Robert Frost Elementary Media Center
Rating: ★★★★½ (4.5 stars)
Interest Level: Grades 3-6

Which plants are carnivorous? What’s the smelliest plant in the world? And what is the most bizarre-looking flower? This eye-opening book explores the amazing diversity of the natural world, examining how plants grow, reproduce, defend themselves, and survive against the odds in some of the harshest climates on Earth. Packed with pop-ups, booklets, and flaps and accompanied by detailed artwork, this hands-on, fact-packed guide explains key curriculum knowledge in an accessible and fun way that’s perfect for budding botanists.
