PLANT is an Eyewitness Book that discovers the world of plants close-up. It covers their structure, natural history, and importance in human life. The book is accurate, authoritative, and clear with almost three-dimensional color photographs on every page. The information is presented in a complex, organized fashion with the global elements and structure mirroring the text to the photographs/illustrations. This is a wonderful science information book that teaches everything one would want to know about plants.

This review refers to the 1989 edition. Gr 3 – 6—This is a 64-pages indexed photo essay that introduces the world of plants. Topics range from what a plant is to uses of plants. Each section is a two-page spread packed with information, mostly in small font worked in and around the large and brightly colored photographs. The vocabulary (adventitious) and sentence structure are for older readers, but even younger readers will enjoy the photographs and will be able to work out some details. ( )
