How Plants Work: A hands-on guide to the natural world By Christiane Dorion and Beverley Young.

This is another interesting book I picked for N. I am slowly falling in love with pop-up books, as N started to be a little gentle with the flaps and the pop-ups. This book is all about how plants and trees affect the environment, provide for humans, and provide for living things as well. Each double-page spread in the book is based around a different question and provides answers, additional facts, and some cool paper engineering.

Christiane and Beverley book combination is super interesting and each page is filled with colourful flaps.

This book talks about,
*What is a plant and why do plants have flowers?
*How do plants grow from tiny seeds?
*What do plants feed on?
*How do plants defend themselves? ( We played with the touch me not plant tab very much)
*Where do plants live?
*Why are trees so important?
*What are the world’s weirdest plants?
*What plants end up on your plate?
*How do we use plants?

Meet some of nature’s marvels, from the tallest tree to the smallest flower; from the toughest survivors to the most bizarre-looking blooms. Many of the most interesting plants in the world are named and illustrated. There is also a section on which plants end up on your plate and all the ways we use plants. All the information presented in the book is as interesting as the book’s unique format. 

When I listed the contents of both the books, you may wonder, is it an apt book for a 4-year kid? No, not every content is apt for this young kid. But, a few pages are so interesting, and it is very fun to play and learn along. Much information from both the books is new to me and I am learning along with him.

It’s so much fun to open and close the tabs and sometimes he storms at me saying, it’s my book and you are not supposed to play with it.

*Fair enough*
