Botany book for 2nd grade?


Recommended Posts

I have really struggled with this as well. It seems there are 47,000 books on animals, but finding a good spine about plants is almost impossible.


Ones I am considering getting include:

Usborne Science With Plants: http://www.amazon.com/Science-Plants-Activities-Mike-Unwin/dp/0746009763/


Janice VanCleave's Plants



Essential Atlas of Botany



From Seed to Plant



The Life of Plants Series (link is to one of the volumes)



Eyewitness Plant



Plants in Different Habitats



Hope some of these ideas help

I'm having problems with linking on my iPhone at the moment, but Gail Gibbons has several books on plants, including From Seed to Plant, Tell Me, Tree, and Vegetable Garden. We also love the Let's Read and Find Out series by several authors.

Lastly, the Kingfisher Young Discoverers Fruits, Flowers book is just the right amount of words and pictures to keep a young one's interest.


You could also read aloud the free (online) Seed Babies and use Roots, Shoots, Buckets and Boots as your own garden reference.
