The book, What Do Roots Do?, grabbed my attention as one of the books on display at Bristol Public Library. I love using the library to preview books to see if I like them.
I really like the illustrations in the book, especially the title with the roots dangling down from the word ROOTS. Throughout the book, the illustrations are detailed and engaging, showcasing various habitats and places. I also really like how various concepts are illustrated, like the variety of roots in the garden and a comparison page of different trees with roots on one page spread.
The book uses a rhyming text to share information about roots. From reading the book, I learn that roots:
Hold plants up straight in the wind
Hold plants growing on a slant
Keep plants in place if we're walking or playing on a plant (we play on plants? Of course--grass, trees, and more!)
Plants use roots to drink
Plants use tubes to send the water to other parts of the plant
Plants may have rootlets, taproots, a trunk, branches, twigs, and leaves
Extra water "blows away on a breeze"
Half of a tree is hidden underground in the form of roots
Plants will usually die if we break off the roots
We can care for plants by not digging them up
We can water plants to help care for them
We eat some underground roots, like carrots, potatoes, and radishes
Cactus roots spread out far to find precious water
Water lilies have roots in the ground under the water
I love how it ends, reminding us of the complexity of a plant!Read more ›
I especially like the fact that BrookeBook Company were so ready to accommodate me when I did not receive the book. I not only received the second shipment, but I received the first ship as well. I have forwarded a check to them. There were no questions asked when I said I could not respond when I had not received the book. Wow, what service and such a great spirit. Thank you again.
