Healing Plants

Medicine from Nature

From the Series Plant-ology

How is a rain forest plant from Madagascar used to cure cancer? What part of a willow tree has been used as a painkiller for thousands of years? Which large plant has long, spiky leaves that contain a thick, cooling liquid that can soothe sunburn and insect bites? Young readers will find out as they are introduced to a world of plants that can help heal wounds and treat illnesses. While children enjoy reading about these amazing plants, they will be learning plenty of core science information about plant parts, habitats, and life cycles. Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of an early elementary audience, this colorful, fact-filled title gives readers a chance not only to learn, but also to develop their powers of observation and critical thinking. With its stunning photographs and surprising, high-interest facts, the book makes learning about some of the world's most helpful plants a lively and engaging experience.
