An amazingly complex tale of earth's life cycle (photosynthesis) between plants and humans/animals, told simply and powerfully for young children. Great for booktalking because the illustrations catch the eye and the text is straightforward and dynamic. The author's notes at the end give more detail, providing an apology for the over-simplification of photosynthesis, while it acknowledges other ways living things extract, split and exhale periodic elements. The notes are most appropriate for much older readers (ages 9-12), making this book a good pick for both the younger and the older set.
