Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references (page 31).
Summary, etc.: As a child, Rachel Carson lived by the rhythms of the natural world. Spring after spring, year after year, she observed how all living things are connected. And as an adult, Rachel watched and listened as the natural world she loved so much began to fall silent. Spring After Spring traces Rachel's journey as scientist and writer, courageously speaking truth to an often hostile world through her book, and ultimately paving the way for the modern environmental movement.

    K-Gr 3—Sisson's paneled illustrations place Rachel Carson in the natural world that fascinated her from childhood and inspired her groundbreaking books. Sisson stresses Carson's curiosity about and careful observations of birds, insects, and other animals as she grew up in Pennsylvania. Those same qualities served her well as a scientist and writer who introduced readers to the lives of sea creatures in best-selling books. Sisson's diagrams help explain the harmful effects of DDT that Carson articulated in her most influential work, Silent Spring. Sisson leaves out many personal and professional challenges Carson faced, which Laurie Lawlor includes in her picture book biography for slightly older readers, Rachel Carson and Her Book That Changed the World. Although Sisson does mention some of the controversy the Silent Spring generated in the main text, she provides additional information in an author's note that emphasizes the book's influence on the environmental movement. Her meticulous notes reveal Sisson's own extensive research. The variety of page layouts add visual interest. VERDICT This brief, upbeat biography that introduces an important scientist and her work would be a good addition to most public and school library collections.—Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University Library, Mankato
