Flowering Trees & Shrubs In India [1.6 MB]
D.V. Cowen
"Every year, from March to May, when the air is at its hottest, the ground is parched and cracked and a film of dust covers every leaf and branch, one watches in awe that miracle of nature which brings forth from the branches of so many trees such an extravagant abundance of colourful blossoms and clean, polished foliage. It is at this time of the year that so many people feel an urge to learn more about the trees they live amongst...This book is not concerned with the scientific study of plants or with the botanical forms of flowers and leaves but with those trees and shrubs, which, by the beauty of their appearance or the familiarity of their names, lead visitors and residents to search for further information. It is for those people ó ordinary people with little or no knowledge of botany but with a love of beauty and an interest in this country ó that these pages have been written. The first consideration throughout has been easy identification."

Looking at the Body [549 KB]
David Suzuki with Barbara Hehner
Some people talk about the body as if itís a machine. They think of the heart as a pump, the bones as a framework, the eye as a camera, the brain as a computer, and so on. Itís a simple way of thinking about our bodies, but our body is far more complex than any machine. This excellent book gets children to explore the many parts and organs of their body. The book presents many amazing facts and suggests many activities.

Looking At Plants [520 KB]
David Suzuki with Barbara Hehner
We are so used to seeing vegetation around us that we pay scant attention to it. But if we care to observe them carefully, we will be amazed by their capabilities. Plants have devised elaborate techniques to survive and reproduce. The authors have tried to convey this through activities that can be performed easily either at school or at home.
