Respect for the environment is also the theme of Reading the Wild by Elise Maclay, illus. by Bev Doolittle. The artist's keenly observant watercolors of such subjects as a snowshoe hare blending into a winter landscape or a bear family nestled among trees in a verdant hillside serve as springboards for a variegated text, arranged according to different animals (hummingbird, badger, etc.) The animal profiles include descriptions, Native American lore, original poetry and tips for observing these creatures.
