Book cover: "Nature's Patchwork Quilt" by Mary Miche
Nature’s Patchwork Quilt: Understanding Habitats (Dawn Publications, 2012) by Lakeport author Mary Miché has been listed as an outstanding science trade book for children by the National Science Teacher’s Association.

Miché wrote in an email today that she has been nominated as a finalist for its yearly award.

Nature’s Patchwork Quilt is shelved at the Middletown library.

Miché and illustrator Consie Powell use the theme of patchwork quilts to explain nature habitats. David Mizejewski, a naturalist for the National Wildlife Federation, credited Miché’s book for “an excellent job introducing ideas such as adaptation and biodiversity in an easy-to-understand, age-appropriate way.”

Supplemental resources assist to identify the diverse animals, birds and plants depicted within the book.

Miché will sign copies of her book from 3 to 5 p.m. Dec. 7 at Watershed Books, located at 305 N. Main St. in Lakeport. For more information, call 707-263-5787 or email cheri@watershedbookco.com.
