Poison Petals

Don't Eat!

From the Series Plant-ology

Some flowers may look beautiful, but their petals and seeds have the power to kill! This book explores how plants use toxins to protect themselves from hungry animals that are looking for a tasty meal. Children will enjoy reading about the fascinating (and sometimes horrifying) ways in which some plants have evolved to protect themselves, all while they learn about plant bodies and life cycles. Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of an early elementary audience, this colorful, fact-filled volume gives readers a chance not only to learn, but also to develop their powers of observation and critical thinking. From stunning photographs to high-interest facts, Poison Petals: Don’t Eat! makes learning about plant defenses a lively, engaging experience. Poison Petals: Don’t Eat! is part of Bearport’s Plant-ology series.
