“Learning about plants might seem like a waste of time when you have homework to do or a snap to send. But with an uncertain future due to climate change and a natural world that needs caring for, knowing about plants can change—and maybe even save—your life,” writes Philippa Joly in A Kid’s Guide to Plants of the Pacific Northwest: with Cool Facts, Activities and Recipes (Harbour $26.95) for 6-12 years. From digging up roots to crafting plantain salve, readers discover the wonders of nature while fostering self-confidence, attention span and environmental stewardship. With over fifty plant profiles, including Coastal Indigenous uses and fun activities, Joly combines her expertise as a herbalist and outdoor educator to create an accessible and enriching guide to the natural world. 9781990776212
