A World of Plants is a stunning, all encompassing book about plants full of facts about what plants can do. It is a beautiful, oversized hardboard book approx. 11"x15". The targeted age group is 7 - 10, but, adults might be surprised that they learned quite a few new things by reading this book as well.
Some of the topics that I found fascinating were:
- Plants That Eat Animals
- Sacred and Symbolic Plants
- Breeding Plants
- Ten Plants That Feed the World
- Cycling Carbon
- Plants That Steal
- Tall, Taller, Tallest Trees
- Desert Plants
- Breeding Plants...... and honestly so many more.
Each particular topic is given a (2)-page spread like the ones shown below with beautiful illustrations and details about the specific topic featured. There is interesting information about photosynthesis, what it is and how it works. It also cautions readers about how important it is to take the climate crisis seriously and how important plants are to life on Planet Earth.
This book would work great as an instructional tool as well as for personal collections.
Thanks go to Candlewick and Walker Books US for sending this lovely book my way.
