Gr 1-2–Discussing everything from seeds and bees to aquatic life to the creatures who make their homes underground, short verses invite readers to consider various elements of the natural world. With bright, charming paper cutout illustrations by Robin, this book invites discovery. When lifted, the illustrated peek-throughs reveal intriguing facts about the plants, animals, and environments in each verse. The text and illustrations work together to create a layered love letter to nature. The end of the book features a short stanza that encourages readers to pay attention to nature and provides a two-page spread on labeled plants and animals to serve as a jumping-off point for outdoor explorations.
VERDICT This beautiful title can be read multiple ways. The verses make a sweet narrative on their own, and the facts tucked beneath the folded pages offer tidbits of information to start conversations and inquiry. Purchase for poetry and nonfiction picture book collections.
