Description

Learn about the plants and critters that depend upon one of the most endangered ecological systems in the world: the prairie! A beautiful picture book perfect for any young nature enthusiast, classroom, parent, or grandparent, The Prairie That Nature Built is written in cumulative verse and includes educational backmatter.

Sing-song repetition reinforces the richness of dynamic prairie life, and lifelike illustrations will be sure to inspire a love and awe of nature in any young reader!

These are the critters that worm and squirm
Alive in the dirt so dark and thick
Under the prairie that nature built.

This is the prairie that grows so free.
And this is the kid that loves it—me!

Backmatter includes:
  • A Prairie Primer: detailed information on Prairies, including where they can be found in different countries and how they are crucial for the health of the planet
  • Learn about Prairie Animals and Plants: information on who lives on Prairies—burrowers like prairie dogs, scavengers like dung beetles, grazers like bison and antelope, and more!
