Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures

Lisa Combs, October 9, 2013

DiCamillo has done it again. Within the pages of Flora and Ulysses, she takes you into the realm of tender emotion, angst and self reliance. A super squirrel? Yes, you want to read about this super squirrel and his friend. Young readers through adults will turn the pages in delight as adventures unfurl and revelations come to light. Don't let this be the only DiCamillo book you read.

Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants by Douglas Tallamy
Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants

Lisa Combs, September 13, 2013

This is THE book for those who love nature, gardening, birds, butterflies, insects and care about the future of the environment. As man has made the world a smaller place, the environmental changes have increased. We love those ornamental beauties in our yards, parks and thoroughfares. But at what cost? Tallamy enlightens us as to the impact of non native plants. Have you been to a park or green space that was quiet of birds? Why? Look around and be aware there are no insects to feed the birds. Many 'alien' plants don't have their usual insects pestertring them. That is why gardeners like those plants. But if we don't have plants attracting insects, our birds and other wild life have less to eat and we have less to enjoy. Each tiny postage stamp yard makes a difference. Beautiful photographs, well presented information with locale plant guides to he;p the home owner be able to go NATIVE.
