KIRKUS REVIEW

 Continuing her contribution to ecology for the very young, Glaser (Tanya's Big Green Dream, 1994, etc.) discusses composting in so inviting a manner than not only readers, but their entire families, might foreswear the expensive garden center and turn the recycling of household wastes into a group endeavor. The methodology and expected results are clearly stated in a rhythmic text, with two final pages offering even more comprehensive data in a question-and-answer format. Although the people look a little stiff, Hariton's watercolors depict the garden as a blossoming, decaying, living, fertile environment, and add to the Earth- friendly feel of the book. Framing borders display seasonal motifs; wildlife abounds in this celebration of decomposition and renewal. (Nonfiction. 5-8)
