"Through the format of a fairytale style presentation, young readers are provided with some very 'real world' information about environmental issues and Earth's interdependent ecosystems. Ideal for family, preschool, and community library collections, How Mother Nature Flowered The Fields is very highly recommended for its originality, its entertainment value, and its informational content."
