Muskrat for Supper by Kenny Salwey -OPTIONAL


Salwey, Kenny Muskrat for Supper 160 pgs. Scholastic Press, 2012. $11.01.  (Rating: G)
River Rat, Kenny Salwey offers his advice and opinions regarding living with and exploring nature. He talks about his experiences and promotes preserving wild spaces. He makes suggestions such as keeping a nature journal.
I loved this book, because I am a nature lover and appreciate the knowledge that the author is recording.  Here’s the part I am dreading: this book is just not appealing for students. The cover and black and white photographs look dated. I think even a student who was interested in nature would be bored, like listening to a lecture by a grandparent. But I would be willing to bet that students would go nuts over this author as a guest speaker though!
ELEMENTARY – OPTIONAL Reviewer: Stephanie MLS graduate & Author.
