About the Author:

Esther Porter grew up in North Dakota, where she and her best friend had enough small animals to open a zoo. She is the author of a number of science-y books including What's Sprouting in My Trash? A Book about Composting and Sun Power: A Book about Renewable Energy. Her only animals now are Chopstick the angry cat, Georgie the confused cat, and Samantha Turkey Porter the slobbery pup.

From Booklist:

Kids may not know much about composting when they start this book, but by the time they’re done with the simple overview, they’ll have a good idea of what it is, how to do it, and the ways it can help the environment. Porter begins by explaining how the earth composts naturally, and then moves onto more difficult concepts—for instance, how microorganisms work and the way bacteria breaks down waste. Short but informative bites of text appear against oversize color photos, often close-ups, that occupy the entire page. For those who want to get started, a two-page spread titled “Composting in a Jar” offers simple instructions. The back matter leads readers to Facthound.com and instructs them to type in a special code to learn more from books in the Earth Matters series. Grades 1-3. --Ilene Cooper
