My Review:  This book was a great educational tool for kids. Although it does give good overviews as well as in-depth explanations for certain things.  I do wished it would have been just a little longer.  I could see this used as a stepping stone to get kids both boys and girls interested in plants.  Where they will want to go out and learn even more.
