Through a gentle poem, reader’s eyes can savor photos of nature’s birds, insects, and animals. Creatures shown are so close, readers may feel like they can reach out and touch each one. The yellow duckling looks right into their eyes, some may want to screech at the croaking frogs, and they may hold their breath at the sight of a newborn fawn. A wonderful introduction to nature.
The afterward provides additional information on each creature featured, to invite conversations on their favorites. A book that inspires curiosity about learning more.
