Carl in the Garden

by Molly Sanchez

Have you ever wondered where plant names come from? More than three hundred years ago, a little boy was born who would forever change the way that plants were named. Born in Sweden, Carl Linnaeus was fascinated by the many plants around him, and he thought up a way of naming and grouping plants together that is still used today. He even discovered many new plants along the way. Filled with beautiful illustrations, Carl in the Garden tells the story of one boy who opened a whole new world to those who came after him just by doing what he loved.
