Who doesn't enjoy a beautiful flower garden, an orchard filled with fruit trees, or a lush green forest? A surprising number of plants, even gorgeous and inviting ones, can be lethal. Readers of this engaging volume learn about some of Earth's deadliest plants, several of which are commonly found in gardens. They include the oleander, rhododendrons, rhubarb, castor bean plants, and deadly nightshade. Age-appropriate text highlights important elementary science concepts supported by colorful photographs. Captions, fact boxes, and a graphic organizer enrich the main text.
