Who’s Munching My Milkweed?
Smoky Zeidel puts before our eyes a side of nature we might not always be privy to in her book Who’s Munching My Milkweed. I am not as up on my monarch butterfly information as I would like to be, and for once being blissfully ignorant was a bit of a delight when it came to the sudden surprises that this book held for me. The narrative style that I happened upon was one that was very warm and leans on rhyming.
The pictures that were within Smoky Zeidel’s Who’s Munching My Milkweed were beautiful and show us a small part of what is going on around us while we are going about our lives and missing the miracle that these small delicate creatures truly are. The pages tell us of their life from beginning to end and what they eat–the only thing that they eat. I would definitely recommend this book to children of all ages. It will keep them aware of the world around them as it has helped me myself become aware.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
