Review Text

As no other author could, Donald Culross Peattie, minstrel of natural science, has written a singularly beautiful book to introduce young readers to "the marvellous inter-relationship of all Nature". In contrast to a number of natural history texts, which act in many cases as soporifics, and in some are guaranteed to kill any germinating interest in natural ??sicnaces, this guide to life in the forest, desert, sky and ocean infuses with wonder and delight plants and animals familiar to children. Overflowing with curious and stimulating information, with illustrations by Rudolf Freund, this inspired synthesis of subject and author belongs wherever there are children. Curiosity and interest here will "grow with what it feeds on", leaving appetite for more knowledge of Nature's balances, cycles and seasons. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
