Then this is the book for them. The beautiful illustrations are very eye-catching and helpful with identification without being too detailed where it may lose the child's attention. The information is on-point and delivered in a fun way that encourages the young reader to dive into different types of plants (from conifers and cacti to carnivorous and creeping plants), fungi (edible, inedible, and poisonous), and lichens. - Britney W, Reviewer

Each of these high quality, oversized “encyclopedias” provides a wealth of information about their respective topics. While they are organized unconventionally when compared to traditional encyclopedias, their topics are appealing and very accessible for youngsters: Not all of us Fly, We Live by the Waterside, Flowering Plants, Non-Flowering Plants.
Each text is filled with colorful, detailed illustrations that are filled with labels, and captions. The text is sparse, however it does the job and goes a long way toward explaining the key features or importance of each creature or the flora and fauna on each two page spread. Young botanists and ornithologists will enjoy exploring the pages and learning how to classify and identify a variety of common and unique plants and birds. - Youth Services Book Review
