9781555914820: Rachel Carson: Preserving a Sense of Wonder (Images of Conservationists)

Winner of Learning magazine’s Teacher’s Choice Award

From a small town in Pennsylvania came a little girl who saw the magic in spring fog and heard the ocean’s song in her heart. This was the girl who one day would become the groundbreaking author of Silent Spring. In this engaging biography, now updated, young readers will experience the enchantment of nature as seen through the eyes of the budding naturalist, while learning about her childhood, her accomplishments, and her passion for nature. Combining Thomas Locker’s majestic artwork with Joseph Bruchac’s poetic text, Rachel Carson offers an educational and inspiring account of her life. Includes excerpts from Carson’s work and a timeline of major events.

Joseph Bruchac, co-author of The Keepers of the Earth series, is a nationally acclaimed Native American storyteller and writer who has authored more than seventy books of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry for adults and children. He lives in upstate New York.

Thomas Locker has illustrated more than thirty books, many of which he has written, including Skytree, Walking with Henry, John Muir, and Hudson: The Story of a River. His books have received many awards, including the Christopher Award, the Knickerbocker Lifetime Achievement Award, the John Burroughs Award, and The New York Times Award for best illustration.

From Booklist:

Gr. 3-5. This handsome picture-book biography presents the life and accomplishments of Rachel Carson. After telling about Carson's childhood, her education, and her career as a writer, Bruchac writes lyrically about her love of nature, particularly the ocean, and concludes with an appreciation of her impact on the environment. Similar in format and layout to Locker's books John Muir: America's Naturalist (2003) and Walking with Henry: Based on the Life and Works of Henry David Thoreau (2002), this volume offers several lines of text on each left-hand page, facing a full-page illustration. Locker's paintings, particularly the landscapes, are dramatically lit scenes that capture the beauty and majesty of nature. The last page includes excerpts from Carson's writings about the natural world and a paragraph giving some specific biographical information, such as birth and death dates and the titles of her most famous books. A good read-aloud choice for Earth Day. Carolyn Phelan
