Back to Nature
Posted by: Gillian Engberg

In a recent post  on the New York Times blog, Motherlode, KJ Dell’Antonia referenced a study led by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s J. Allen Williams Jr. that found a sharp decline in illustrations of the natural world in the pages of Caldecott Medal-winners. It’s a interesting question: do today’s picture books focus less on wilderness and more on urban and suburban environments? We’d love to hear your thoughts, and, while you’re musing, enjoy these back-to-nature picture books, all recently starred in Booklist: And Then It’s Spring, Step Gently Out, In the Sea, and House Held Up by Trees.
