Trees, Leaves, Flowers & Seeds Summary

Trees, Leaves, Flowers & Seeds: A visual encyclopedia of the plant kingdom by DK

Packed with more than 1,000 incredible images and full of fascinating facts, this beautiful children's book takes you on an exciting expedition through the wonders of the plant kingdom.

Explore the incredible world of plants, from the smallest seeds to the tallest trees. Find out about the weirdest, smelliest, and deadliest flowers. Which plants eat insects? How do cacti store water? What flower looks like a bee? Where is the tallest tree in the world? Trees, Leaves, Flowers & Seeds explores the mysterious world of plants to find the answers to these and many more questions.

Each type of plant - such as a flowering plant, a tree, a grass, or cactus - is examined close-up, with examples shown from all angles and in cross-section. Picture-filled galleries also show the wonderful variety of plants on different themes, from the habitats they grow in to the plants that supply us with our staple foods. But Trees, Leaves, Flowers & Seeds also takes a fun, more sideways look at some truly strange plants, such as trees with fruits like a giant's fingers, orchids that look like monkey faces, seeds that spin like helicopters, and trees that drip poison.

So open this amazing book and find out more about the world of trees, leaves, flowers, and seeds.
