V is for Venus Flytrap Book



With summer in full bloom, flowers and plants alike are plentiful. I recently had the opportunity to review a great new book from Sleeping Bear Press called V is for Venus Flytrap: A Plant Alphabet that is a perfect read year round.


A little about V is for Venus Flytrap: A Plant Alpahabet:

Why do onions make us cry? What popular nut really isn’t a nut at all? And what makes a forest a rainforest? The answers to these questions and many other fascinating facts can be found in V is for Venus Flytrap: A Plant Alphabet.

Mankind’s dependence upon the plant kingdom goes far beyond the food on our table and the air that we breathe. Plants have also provided shelter and led to important advances in medicine and science. Using the alphabet, horticulturalist Eugene Gagliano covers a wide range of topics including exotic species and their locations; plants’ role in a healthy lifestyle; food crops and the world economy; and the importance of conservation and environmental stewardship in our world today.

My take:  Sleeping Bear Press scores a home run for illustrations and writing.  Each page is creative, imaginative and very informative.    While this book is a little too old for my 3yr and16 month old, I must admit I enjoyed each and every page.  I can’t wait until my boys start asking about the topics covered in this book, it does an excellent job in explaining difficult concepts like the Greenhouse Effect in a way young readers can easily grasp.  I learned something I never knew before on every single page of this book!  This book will appeal to young readers and adults alike.
