Plants Can Poison!
Readers likely know that not every plant is made to be eaten. But perhaps they aren't aware that some species contain deadly toxins that can kill tiny insects, large animals, and even unsuspecting people. In this book, they learn all about deadly plants as well as how to spot them in the wild. Poison is a plant defense and through its discussion, readers learn about survival, adaptation, and life cycles, all important science curriculum concepts. Full-color photographs accompany text written especially for elementary readers.
