...a mini museum between the covers of a book. [Eyewitness series] -- The New York Times

I just finished reading this book with my 7-yr old son and 5-yr old daughter, reading a few pages every night for the last week. This is one of the best of the Eyewitness Books we've read, and that's saying a lot.


Not only are the pictures beautiful and interesting, but the text is well-written and easy for the little ones to understand. It also covers topics not always covered in standard Plant books, such as the history of plant collecting and how botanists study plants.

Some of our favorite sections include:
How a Plant is Pollinated
Self-Defense
Meat Eaters
Plant Passengers
Living Without Water
The Plant Collectors

I haven't come across a DK book that didn't spark my interest, but this one gets especially high marks from me. I highly recommend it, especially as a home learning resource or for anyone wanting to learn more about plants in an easy-to-understand format. Five stars.
