Editorial Reviews

Review

Visually stunning, it’s an engrossing overview of Earth’s remarkable and diverse plant life that provides opportunities for ongoing discovery on every page.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Elegantly encapsulating these dizzyingly diverse and ubiquitous wonders, Scott’s photographic illustrations, too, offer astronomical appeal. Complete with an index and sources for suggested reading, this dazzling display is ideal for classroom and coffee-table collections, budding botanists and curious kids, and everywhere—and everyone—in between.
—Booklist (starred review)

A beautifully constructed compendium of plant life from around the world that offers up a visual and informational treat for future botanists and casual browsers alike...The large format, sumptuous artwork, and thoughtful writing put this one a cut above the rest and make this a must-have for any library that can house it.
—School Library Journal

As in companion volume Animalium by Jenny Broom and also illustrated by Scott (2014), the digitally colored images are not drawn to scale but are rendered with as much attention to visual impact as to exact, formal anatomical detail...a big, decorative, eye-filling survey.
—Kirkus Reviews

This title makes a sizable claim to operate as a museum of world plants, and it delivers in a big way...The text is accessible to 3rd grade classrooms (pictures will impress those even younger), yet will still offer interest to secondary grades for botany class or browsing.
—School Library Connection

Containing everything from perennials to bulbs to tropical exotica, this wonderful feast of botanical knowledge is complete with superb cross sections to show how plants work.
—Houston Lifestyles & Homes

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply beautiful
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on February 21, 2022
The first thing you notice is the size of this book, it measures 27.9 x 1.7 x 37.7 cm and 112 pages.

The beautifully illustrated cover gives you an idea as to what’s inside.

It is set out in chapters from grass to orchids and so much in between.

The idea is to imagine you are walking around a museum and seeing these beautiful flora and fungi. It is simply written (aimed at 10yrs +) but it’s not childish in any way. It’s very interesting and there’s so much to learn with Kathy Willis’ writing and the stunning illustrations by Katie Scott.

There are 8 books in this ‘Welcome to the Museum’ series and I will be buying them all ( and I’m way over 10 years old).

As a plant fanatic it was so nice to discover this book! I first saw it at Kew Gardens but they had sold out! It’s absoutely stunning, the illustrations alone are a marvel to look at, but the information is fantastic too. If you love plants and botany then this book is a MUST!!!
