Get outside and explore the fascinating world of fungi with this beautifully illustrated pocket guide for children.
Did you know that fungi are not quite plant, not quite animal, and not quite bacteria, but a unique organism in a kingdom all of their own? Beautiful gallery-style pages showcase a fascinating world of fungi, including glow-in-dark fungi, the funky fungi that give off the strongest smell, and the most colorful fungi. Fun off-the-page activity spreads include how to make a spore print and a recipe for delicious store-bought mushrooms on toast.
With tips on mushroom identification (including the ones to avoid!), fungi-based activities to enjoy, and a guide to the most colorful and unusual mushrooms, this little book will provide hours of pleasure, both indoors and out.
Be inspired to go outdoors and get up close with nature with this brand-new series from internationally bestselling illustrator Nina Chakrabarti. Also in this series: Hello Trees, Hello Bugs, and Hello Fossils and Shells.
