“We can help our meadows, too!”
Grassy, flower-filled meadows are really pretty! It’s oh-so tempting to hike and skip right through them. But meadows are actually fragile, and human footsteps and picnics can cause them harm–and then they cannot do their important work of providing habitat for creatures and plants, filtering water, and even storing carbon. The bouncy text and vibrant illustrations in this sturdy board book show little nature lovers how to easily protect meadows while enjoying one of Earth’s loveliest features.
Here’s what Kirkus is saying about HELLO, MEADOW!
“An early, age-appropriate lesson in how to appreciate the natural world.“

Here’s what people are saying about EAT UP, BEAR!
“A great introduction to enjoying nature without disturbing its rhythms.” —Foreword Reviews
“Readers aren’t going to miss the noble, not-so-subtle theme of this educational board book: that humans must “take care or bears will eat your food!” …a diverse assemblage of picnickers, campers, and hikers plainly demonstrate various methods of keeping bears away from tempting people-food, including locking up coolers, using bear-safe containers, and appropriately disposing of trash. Safely separated by the gutter, bears on the right-hand page nosh blissfully on insects, acorns, berries, and the like.”–Kirkus Reviews.
