Editorial Reviews

"Every bit as worth as their predecessors." -The Horn Book"A virtual catalog of brief meditations on little earthly wonders-from "Amoeba" to "Zinnias"-rendered in characteristically simple yet exquisitely language and though." -Voice of Youth Advocates"Ms. Worth brilliantly employs all aspects of the poet's craft...Like haiku, her poems are written in the present tense of one thing keenly observed, inviting readers to complete the picture." -Myra Cohn Livingston, The New York Times Book Review"Valerie Worth's small, solid poems are consistently accessible but never condescending or compromising...The observations are sharp, matter-of-fact, fresh but unforced, and Natalie Babbitt's precise, understated drawings have the same virtues." -Pointer/Kirkus Reviews"All the original collaborations between this poet and artist are collected in this volume, which includes ninety-nine poems and an additional fourteen new ones. The early works have been widely praised, for good reason, and the new verses are every bit as worthy as their predecessors...the book is a gift to cherish." -The Horn Book
