Out on the Prairie (Hardcover)
Unusual cut-paper illustrations enhance this rhyming tale of life on the prairie. Notes on the flora and fauna augment the poems and the art (5-9).
— From Ecology
Mixed media art transports readers to the rolling grasslands of Badlands National Park. Learn about the animals that inhabit this semiarid environment where baby critters and their mothers wallow, run, call, bark, hop, scurry, nod, slither, howl, and jump all day long and all through the night.
Count animals from one to ten in the rhyming text modeled after the traditional song "Over in the Meadow" by Olive A. Wadsworth. A guide to prairie flora and fauna is included.
