Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennifer Keeney
Shelley Rotner's vibrant photography is the highlight of this title, which brings the art of composting to life. Children are the main characters in this nonfiction story, which takes place in the yard of a very environmentally conscious family. Vivid, colorful photographs feature the children collecting leftover food scraps for their compost pile. Two sisters trek through the yard in every season to recycle everything from rotting jack-o-lanterns to leftover coffee grounds. Throughout the year, the compost pile is watered and tossed, and in the spring, the family spreads the rich, composted soil throughout their garden. This manuscript shows how simple composting can be, all the while communicating a message of ecological sustainability. Throughout the process of composting, the family works together to plant and harvest deliciously healthy fruits and vegetables. Also, in keeping with the theme of environmental responsibility, the manuscript was printed on paper made with thirty percent recycled post-consumer waste fibers. Reviewer: Jennifer Keeney
