HOW MOTHER NATURE FLOWERED THE FIELDS OF EARTH AND MARS

Author: Thomas Schwartz

Publisher: Reagent Press,

Material: paperback

Summary: This is an environmental trilogy in one volume. In the first story, Mother Nature enlists the help of Bees, Beavers, and Worms to work together to flower the fields. In the second story, Mother Nature seeks help from these same friends to help humans become more responsible for nature and habitat. The final story takes the reader to Mars in 2908, where the process of developing an environment very similar to earth has been developed. This is an environmentally-conscious fantasy.

Adult Reader Reaction: This trilogy offers an imaginative approach to learning about the environment.

Pros: This is an imaginative story. The characters are memorable and the plot moves along cleanly. This is an ideal book for reading aloud.

Cons: The Mars fable is imaginative but seems to be an add-on rather than a continuation of the story related in book one and two.

Educational Themes: The stories demonstrate the importance of balance in nature. When conditions fall out of balance, environment and habitat change; species are endangered; and sometimes irreparable harm is done. Although fiction, the material offers opportunities for real-life discussions and research.
