Montessori-inspired Botany Gifts and Resources for Kids

Sunshine, our youngest daughter has autism.  When it comes to learning she is obsessed about botany, the study of plants.  She loves to study trees, flowers, leaves and basically anything that has to do with plant life.  If there are botany activities on her Montessori shelves, she is as happy as can be.

In the spirit of following Sunshine's interests I have gathered together a list of Montessori-inspired Botany Gifts and Resources to use when I'm in need of a gift or a learning resource for her.  I couldn't resist sharing my fabulous finds.  If you're looking for botany gifts or resources, this is the ultimate guide!
