Publisher's Summary

Learn about the process of Photosynthesis with iMindsJNR audio learning series for younger minds.

You may have asked yourself before now: if plants are alive, why don’t they eat? The answer is they do eat, but not in the same way as humans and animals. Green plants, algae and some bacteria are able to use energy from the sun as a kind of food that enables them to live and grow. The complicated process by which this happens is called photosynthesis. The word ‘photo’ comes from the Greek word phos, meaning ‘light’ and the word ‘synthesis’ means to form something. Together, these words describe the fact that ‘photosynthesis’ is a way of forming something from light.

Beautifully narrated little info

I like these short primers on famous terms. For those outside the field, it's an easy listening version.
