Meadowlands: A Wetlands Survival Story

Meadowlands: A Wetlands Survival Story
by Thomas Yezerski

Summary: The 20,000 acres of wetlands in New Jersey now known as the Meadowlands were once home to hundreds of species of plants and animals, but pollution almost destroyed it. Slowly, but surely, the resilient creatures of the Meadowlands are making a comeback, and the wetlands are recovering.

Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 2011.

Great illustrations, and an intriguing story. Very educational on environmental impact and recovery.

I really like the illustrations in this book. Done in ink and watercolors, they are amazingly detailed, with the smaller vignettes bringing out details within the larger. In this case, the illustrations do a wonderful job of extending the info provided in the text. So well done.
