K-Gr 2–Alladin depicts a journey through backyards, parks, gardens, trails, markets, and playgrounds. Children are introduced to the wonder of flora and fauna that live above and underground. The text also describes some of the processes that nurture plants and animals, including those hidden in the soil. Blinick’s illustrations offer a sense of excitement and serenity, showing cheerful children with light and dark skin tones and different physical abilities. The text and art showcase the idea that “spending time in nature is good for the health of your body and mind.” Cited sources and further reading are not included.
VERDICT This exploration of the outdoors is fit to use for budding biologists.
