Ichabod Kvick och Järnbläckfisken - Sarah Kläpp

Vad ska en riktig barnbok handla om? På sjuttiotalet var det politiskt korrekta, medvetna och lätt uppviglande böcker om föräldrar och barn som umgås genom att demonstrerar mot feta fabrikörer som skiter i miljön. 555 more words

Review: Plant a Pocket of Prairie by Phyllis Root

Plant a Pocket of Prairie by Phyllis Root, illustrated by Betsy Bowen

Prairies used to cover vast swaths of the United States, but are almost entirely gone now.  In this nonfiction picture book, young readers are invited to create their own small prairies at home.  Root offers ideas for what native prairie plants should be planted first and then ties each plant to a type of wildlife that will arrive along with the plants.  Butterfly weed invites monarchs to your yard.  Asters and rough blazing star bring even more butterflies.  Toads, birds, mice, bumblebees, and more may appear in your little garden.  And who knows, if lots of people plant a little prairie, eventually we may have prairies back across the nation. 219 more words
