"Author Mary Dodson Wade does an excellent job delivering a lot of information about plants in a very kid-friendly way . . . By being easy to read, yet having lots of great information and interesting facts, the books fills a niche that is often difficult to fill in this age range."

". . . this colorful and informative book will introduce early elementary students to the many different kinds of plants in the world.
