An introduction to the Meadowlands, a wetlands area in New Jersey which has seen a lot of drastic changes over the years, brought to the brink of collapse and then back again.
  AmandaTolmachev | Aug 11, 2018 |
Meadowlands by Thomas Yezerski, tells the history of the infamous wetland just west of New York City from its pristine, easy relationships with Native Americans ages and ages ago, through its over-development, its poisoning, and finally its rebirth today as a healthy, healing ecosystem. The book is beautifully illustrated with near full-page watercolors of the Meadowlands throughout the ages. Each illustration is ringed by smaller, scientific-style drawings of the flora and fauna that call these wetlands home.
The illustrations are the book’s obvious strength. They are simply wonderous studies of color and light in a natural setting. Each two-page spread show a different time period, making it easy for visual learners to comprehend the slow but steady degradation of the wetlands after the arrival of European imperialists in the 1600s. The text does a great job of providing just the right facts for each stage of the Meadowlands troubled history and addresses the confusing irony of the harm done to the wetlands when they began to get cleaned up; people wanted to live there, and so rather than poisoned wetlands, there were all of a sudden almost no wetlands. As a read aloud, something about it didn’t work. It was definitely too high for my Kindergartners, although by having as an objective teaching them what pollution is and can do helped keep them engaged. There is a brief author’s note which provides a bit more information but could have been much more in depth. As well are a short list of books and a few websites. Overall a good book, but don’t use it in class without a plan first, it’s complicated. ( )

This book begins by describing the flat wet place in New Jersey that you can see from the Empire State Building in New York City. This place is called the Meadowlands and it used to be filled with plants, birds, deer, turtles, squash, flowers, and many other things. The Lenni Lenape people lived there, then the explorers came and began to start developing on it. This began a large stretch of time where people did not care about the Meadowlands or the creatures that lived there. It became a garbage dump, and one of the worst places in America. Then people began caring about the Meadow lands, the stopped dumping trash in it. They started leaving it alone and the plants that once lived there started to grow again, bugs and animals came back. Karin went to the Meadowlands on a field trip and learned more about what she and her family could do to help protect the Meadowlands.

This book told me a story that I never knew. It took me through the development, deterioration, and replenishment of the meadowlands. My favorite thing abuot this book is how each page is surrounded by pictures of thigns that would be included in the environment that is being described on each page. This book should help teach children how important it is to keep our wetlands clean and what they do to help us. It would definitely be fitting for our area. ( )

This book tells the story of Meadowlands, the 20,000 acres of wetlands in New Jersey. Damage to Meadowlands was extensive due to years of pollution, dams and construction. By the 1960s, almost half of these wetlands had turned into piles of trash and polluted water. However, environmental activists, volunteers and local governments have recently helped Meadowlands recover. Slowly, but surely the wetlands are being restored and its wildlife is returning.

From the top of the Empire State Building in New York City, you can see a flat, wet place in New Jersey. Some people think it's just smelly swamps. Others think of it as where the airport or malls or stadiums are. Most people think it's not much of a place at all. This place is called the Meadowlands.
