Plant Life in Field and Garden

This is a reprint from the 1901 version of the third volume in a popular series which introduces children to the wonders of plant life through examination of a variety of plants, including the cabbage, the turnip, the cucumber, and the rose.

In addition to becoming familiar with the structure of plants, the reader discovers how seeds grow, how insects help, and how plants defend themselves. Through this book children are inspired to become keen observers of plant life as they read about and study plants in their natural habitats. Seven color illustrations and numerous black and white drawings complement the text.
