What are stems?

“What Are Stems? covers different types and features of stems, such as underground stems, tree trunks, and thorns; stems’ water-storing function; and nodes and buds...this layout is exceptionally clear, especially for the diagrams...The final page of each title features notes for adults about one or two very simple activities (for example, growing a plant from a root such as a potato) or experiments (such as growing seeds with water, sunlight, or both) related to the book’s topic.” — Miriam Aronin,, 01/13
