Plants. They give us oxygen, provide us with food, and fill our world with color. Plants can also trick animals into becoming their food, and when necessary, some plants can defend themselves with deadly results! This series takes a fresh look at the plant kingdom, focusing on the science behind plants and giving children the opportunity to learn about pollination, seed dispersal, photosynthesis, plant bodies, and plant defense mechanisms. Every book in the series is expertly crafted to meet early elementary and science curriculum standards. Innovative, grade-appropriate activities and experiments, critical-thinking questions, and fascinating fact boxes will keep the pages turning and the pace lively and interactive.
