My plant would dress in casual attire but with a don’t-really-care attitude. My plant tries to fit in  but is usually forgotten, so it is basically a loner. My plant takes a lot of classes, and even with it’s don’t-really-care attitude, it always follows the rules (a goody two-shoes). My plant likes to talk and likes to participate. Even if the other plants say something stupid, my plant laughs (softly, not in front of them). It likes to avoid drama with the other plants.

Through the eyes of young scientists and writers, explore New York City’s myriad habitats and inhabitants. From the tiniest microbes in the waters of Coney Island to the tallest trees in Central Park, every organism has its role. Unlike those in other guidebooks, these species often take on lives of their own, writing about the torture of getting detention as a daddy longlegs to the excitement of trick-or-treating as a northern mockingbird. Life is vibrant within these pages.
