What to Read Wednesday: Botany Books for Kids

The Best Botany Books for Children

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.

Summer is a really fun time for nature study, because everything is green, gardens are thriving, and the weather invites us outside for exploring. We happen to be year-round-homeschoolers, which works out perfectly for botany study. But, even if your kids attend traditional school, you can take advantage of summer break to get them interested in the wonderful world of plants.

When I was a classroom teacher, I took my classes outside as often as possible to get my students closer to nature and under the wide sky. Many of my ‘city kids’ didn’t have much exposure to nature study, and I found that though they were reluctant at first, they learned to appreciate the little wonders of the outdoor world. Teaching kids to appreciate tiny things like dandelion seeds and the rings on a tree helps them connect with the world in a way that grows their appreciation and respect for life.

We are sharing our favorite botany books for kids and hope they will inspire you to explore the plant life around you. While you’re here, we hope you’ll link up your family friendly posts, and leave us some suggestions in the comments if your favorite botany book isn’t on our list.

Happy Reading!

    I adore Miss Rumphius. Never thought of it as a book about botany, but you’re right!
