Plants in Disguise: Features of Creatures in Flowers and Foliage

by Lise Hedegaard

When you wander a woodland forest, skip through a sunlit meadow, or ramble down a dusty path, you might see a furry tail, a bristly beard, or a fuzzy toe. Did you catch a glimpse of an animal? Or was it a plant in disguise? These wild plants aren’t wearing masks or funny noses, but each one displays a feature of a creature. With charming illustrations, engaging prose, and intriguing natural history notes, author Lise Hedegaard and illustrator Debi Schmid introduce elementary-age children to twenty-one native plants with animal names. Budding naturalists and animal lovers alike will delight in peering into the magnifying glass on each page spread for a closer look at the animal feature of plants such as pussytoes, cranesbill, and the cattail. This fresh approach to observing the amazing world of plants and animals makes Plants in Disguise a must-have for schools and libraries.
