Out on the Prairie

Donna M. Bateman, illus. by Susan Swan. Charlesbridge, $15.95 (32p) ISBN 978-1-58089-378-7
Adapting the rhyme “Over in the Meadow,” Bateman takes readers on a trip to Badlands National Park in South Dakota, highlighting 10 animals that make their homes there. Swan’s showstopping collages have a three-dimensional quality that makes the prairie come alive—a brightly marbled grasshopper stares out at readers, while “a mother meadowlark and her little chicks Three” cluster on photographs of actual branches amid sweeping newsprint grasses. An informative appendix (also illustrated) provides further details about bison, howdy owls, grama grasses, and more. All in all, it’s a delightful introduction to a unique and beautiful ecosystem. Ages 4–7. (July)
