The Best Botany Books are there to help you learn more about the plant kingdom
When choosing botany books, decide what you’d like to learn. Botany covers the whole plant kingdom and many topics such as
- Fruiting plants
- Wild Plants
I’m currently acquiring many books on botany and resources for my upcoming botany unit studies.
They will be Charlotte Mason inspired and secular science and language arts units.
My Nature Unit Studies –
- Forest Biomes and Trees (Now Available)
- Farm & Food
- Family Gardening
- Kids Herbs & Foraging
