Go beyond the basics of botany with this introduction to the strangest, coolest things plants can do. You might already know that plants can turn light into food-- but did you know that some plants have to bend or climb to get to the light? Join Spike E. Prickles, the charistmatic cactus host of this book, to learn about all the incredible things plants can do. From wet swamps to dry deserts to the arctic tundra, plants have adapted in a wide variety of ways to survive in all kinds of environment. Bold photographs and bright illustrations highlight all sorts of surprising plant powers: defending themselves with sharp spines, regrowing from small cuttings, hiding from predators, surviving forest fires, and much more! Amazing Plant Powers is a fun, kid-friendly introduction to the wide, wild world of plants-- and why we need them. Includes a glossary of important terms, and suggestions for fun plant projects readers can try on their own.

Welcome to this botanical garden, where human feet have not trodden for many years. Actually, one has-or rather a pair of them have. They belong to a passionate botanist who spends all his time in the company of flowers. He does not seem interested in people, as he feels himself to be a plant rather than a member of the species homo sapiens. He may seem strange-or even scary, like anything unknown-but rest assured that he is completely harmless just like his plants are . . . unless you're a fly or a beetle, which his carnivorous plants love to eat, that is. No worries, those meat lovers might possibly snatch at your snack if you have a ham sandwich or a sausage in your bag, but that's all. Though some of the plants from this forgotten botanical garden look predatory at first sight, even spooky, they are still just plants that can never catch you. Enough talking, though! Keep your hats on as our tour of the botanical garden begins . . .

Expressive text and art tell the story of the life cycle of trees as it has never been told before — in reverse. Here’s a poetic depiction of the life cycle of trees, told one step at a time, based on newly researched information. In simple but evocative text, each step is introduced with “Before . . . ,” making for a rhythmic telling. For example, “Before we stood tall, we clothed ourselves in bark and crowned ourselves in leaves, waving eagerly at the sun.” In a unique twist, the book highlights the underground network of roots and fungus that connects the forest. Trees and their cycle of life have never been more beautifully — or more lovingly — celebrated.

Buzz About Bees is a great overview of all things apiarian. Pick up this book and it engages you with a true/false quiz about what you and your students may or may not know about bees... If you can navigate the BEE-wildering array of apiarian puns, this is a great introduction to all things bees. -- National Science Teachers Association Imagine a world without bees. Not only would it be less colorful -- with fewer wildflowers and flowering plants -- it would be less fruitful as well. A world without bees would mean a world where the food supply would be significantly diminished. Global bee researcher Laurence Packer estimates that bees are responsible for 1/3 of our food supply. Accompanying information about the history, social structure and science behind the world of bees and honey are conservation activities to make the world a place where hives of bees can thrive.
