Score!!! Terrific Books for Botany Studies....

So, I've been looking around for some books to use with the botany portion of our studies next school year....  I have some texts, but I'm looking for reading material with great illustrations to use in lieu of lectures with powerpoint presentations.

We have always loved Steve Parker's books around here, but I didn't realize he had done an entire series of books covering all the different kingdoms of life.  It is called the Kingdom Classificaiton series.  Here is a link to a publisher for schools where one could purchase all six of the books related to prokaryotes, plants, fungi, and such that one might want for a botany study:

Kingdom Classification

Ferns, Mosses & Other Spore-Producing Plants  
Molds, Mushrooms & Other Fungi  
Protozoans, Algae & Other Protists    
Sunflowers, Magnolia Trees & Other Flowering Plants 
Redwoods, Hemlocks & Other Cone-Bearing Plants

And while I won't be needing these, here's another site that carries some of the other titles in this series:

I actually found all of mine used, on (tried, etc. but couldn't find them anywhere else....)

I can't wait to get these in!  They look absolutely terrific!  Steve Parker never disappoints....

Hope your planning for for your classes is going well!
