|Children let their imaginations soar as they read “Prairie Girl’s Song” and follow the adventures of a young girl on her family’s prairie farm.
The story is told through the delightful, rhyming lyrics of a folk song written by musician Kate Ferris.
The vibrant imagery created with Ferris’ words is woven by artist Mary Ann Tully into an enchanting and richly coloured mixed media tapestry of prairie plants and animals.
Seen through the eyes of a child, the diversity of the wild prairie comes alive over the course of a day and into the magic of a prairie night.
The glossary at the end of the book provides an excellent source of information about the ecology of the prairies. “Prairie Girl’s Song” is an essential addition for the shelves of classrooms, schools and home libraries everywhere.
