Compost Stew

"Compost Stew: An A to Z Recipe for the Earth" by Mary McKenna Siddals, 2010

Love this picture book! It really does make you want to start composting if you haven't delved into it yet. I have to admit, I do not yet compost. But I do believe it is in my future.

"Ingredients: Apple cores, 
Bananas, bruised
Coffee grounds with filters, used
Dirt clods, crumbled
Eggshells, crushed
Fruit pulp left behind, all mushed
Grass clippings, 
Hair snippings,
and an Insect or two."
You want to know what else is on this list don't you!?

It's simplistic way of describing how to compost is informative and persuasive. You will love it too!

I'm simply delighted to find this lovely review of my book here at Thumbelina's Swallow. Thank you so much for your kind words, and hope you may indeed be inspired to dig in one day and start your own batch of Compost Stew so that you, too, can spread a little green in the world, one apple core at a time...
