What Do Roots Do? by Kathleen V. Kudlinski and illustrated by David Schuppert is a factual, rhyming picture book which digs into the wonders of roots and the amazing things they do for trees, flowers, and all kinds of plants. Take a peek underground to see how different plants have different roots - cactus roots run out to the sides, while some tree roots go deep, deep down. Discover the path a raindrop takes right through a plant, and find out which roots we might be eating for dinner! At last, a celebration of those unsung heroes of plants: roots! 8 x 11", softcover, 24 pages.
