Each of the four books in the new Plants Close-Up series offers an extremely basic introduction to plant parts and functions. Plants Are Alive! gives a general overview of the function of stems, leaves, flowers, seeds, roots, and the plant life cycle. The other books are slightly more detailed. All the books’ pages are laid out similarly, with one large photo or simple diagram and a short paragraph of text on each page. While this layout is exceptionally clear, especially for the diagrams, it does become a bit monotonous. The final page of each title features notes for adults about one or two very simple activities (for example, growing a plant from a root such as a potato) or experiments (such as growing seeds with water, sunlight, or both) related to the book’s topic. Preschool-Grade 1. --Miriam Aronin --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.
