Reviews

"In lilting, free-verse passages, [Root] lets kids know that even small plots of native plants can replicate prairie conditions. Bowen's woodblock illustrations lend the right low-tech, homemade feel to the pages." --Publishers Weekly

"Could well inspire a new generation of conservationists." --Kirkus Reviews

"Although the description here is of the inhabitants of a Midwestern prairie, the conservation and restoration message is universal." --Horn Book Magazine

"Plant a Pocket of Prairie is one of the spring season's most beautiful and useful books." --Pioneer Press
