Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Spring is here and flower gardening is on many people's agenda. Children will learn many botanical facts from this book. Many experiments are suggested that illustrate various topics, such as the importance of light, pollination, growth patterns, climates, and temperatures. A list of state flowers and a discussion of endangered species are included. Instructions for a small garden plot that would provide good experience for a youngster are easy to follow and would result in a crop of radishes, peas, and pumpkins. A planting guide that is friendly for wildlife is also provided. A nice companion book might be The Square Foot Garden. 2000 (orig. 1996), Kids Can Press, Ages 7 to 11, $12.95 and $5.95. Reviewer: Barbara Youngblood
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Sketchy but adequate introductions. Bird includes many full-colored labeled drawings of different species with descriptions of their homes and habits. State birds are listed, and chapters discuss songs, banding, migration, and provide tips for beginning bird-watchers. Activities include making a milk-carton birdhouse and a plastic-bottle feeder. Plant covers groups and parts, pollination, defenses, etc. Most topics include directions for a project or activity. "Looking at lawns," for example, suggests that readers examine a small patch of grass with a magnifying glass and note the variety of plants and creatures they see. State flowers are included, as are poisonous and endangered plants. In both books, double-page chapters are accompanied by bright, decorative, and sometimes useful illustrations; both have suggestions for caring for the animal or plant life in our ecosystem.-Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Kirkus Reviews
paper: 1-55074-812-2 Meet a plant: What are its parts? What do plants need to grow? How do they make seeds? Survive the winter? Protect themselves? Spread? These and a dozen other questions are briefly answered in this handsome, inexpensive title by the author of Animals in Motion (see review above) and other science titles. Each topic is treated in a double page spread, extensively illustrated with full-color paintings. Drawings are done with such accuracy and attention to detail that the reader can identify particular plants even without the captions. Boys and girls are shown starting a winter garden indoors, growing onions, carrots and potatoes. Other pages show children sprouting corn and bean seeds in a jar, pollinating a lily, identifying winter weeds, and creating a wild life garden. Endangered plants, different habitats in the United States, and poisonous plants are also introduced. The title includes a list of state flowers and a map of growing zones, though the latter is hard to read because the map indicates different zones by color, but does not tell the dates for the growing seasons or label the states. Also new to the Starting With Nature Series is Bird Book. (Index) (Nonfiction. 8-12)
