A Tallgrass Prairie Alphabet (Bur Oak Book) by Claudia McGehee

STALKS of grass towering over ones head. Patches of yellow and purple wildflowers as far as the eye can see. Thousands of butterflies fluttering across an ocean of grass. Herds of bison plowing through deep snow. Scenes like this were familiar on the tallgrass prairie that once stretched across Americas heartland. Today, although most of the original prairie has disappeared, hints of its beauty still remain. Illustrator Claudia McGehee brings the glory of the prairie back to life in A Tallgrass Prairie Alphabet. From the yellow stargrass that welcomes springtime to the butterfly weed that attracts summers favorite winged visitors, from the horned lark that soars in the fall to the little bluestem that fights its way above the snow--each season unfolds in the vibrant color and vivid details of McGehees scratchboard illustrations. Old friends like white-tailed deer and the short-eared owl, as well as the endangered species like the greater prairie-chicken, are all depicted living in harmony within their native habitat. For those wanting to learn more about the wonders of this rich environment, McGehee provides the common and scientific names of all the plants and animals she illustrates. Anyone who has ever seen remnants of the tallgrass prairie--from child to teacher to tourist to prairie enthusiast--will appreciate the passion and warmth that leap from the pages of this beautifully illustrated alphabet book.
