Weeds Find a Way, picture book trailer from Carolyn Fisher on Vimeo.
My children and I truly enjoyed this book. I challenge you to look at a weed in the same way after you read the lovely descriptive writing, detailing the perseverance of these plants. The author realizes that weeds generally aren’t looked upon with value, in fact they’re often misunderstood plants that grow in unwanted places. However, with the visual appeal of the gorgeous full-color illustrations, a new picture is painted of the beauty a weed actually has. You realize that they are fighters and will indeed find a way to endure, grow, and develop when the odds are against them, and often with quite lovely results if we take the time to look and pay attention to the nature around us.
At the end of the book there is a glossary of several specific types of weeds. Some are familiar like the dandelion and milkweed, and some not so much, such as the spotted knapweed or teasel.
Weeds Find a Way will make a fantastic addition to any home or classroom library.
