Roots and Shoots by Judith Heneghan


Roots and Shoots by Judith Heneghan

This series highlights the relationship betweem human need and plant life in both our local and global environments. Roots and Shoots looks at the amazing variety of plants around the world, and focuses on the ingenious ways in which plants germinate and put down roots to provide nourishment and stability as they grow from a seed into a mature plant, along with many other processes that keep the plant and human world connected. Told through a lyrical narrative, this book contains specially commissioned illustrations that bring the plant world to life.
