about

This poetic celebration of animals large and small reminds us that while some creatures are cuddly and companionable, others can be ferocious, helpless, or shy. No matter how creepy, slimy, mean, or odd an animal might seem, they all need us to be considerate of them. As a day moves gently from morning to night, a variety of children interact with - or keep a respectful distance from - creatures in their natural environments. Ashley Wolff's luscious, exquisitely detailed illustrations and Joanne Ryder's lyrical text inspire a sense of wonder at the animal world around us. - An acclaimed nonfiction author and the illustrator of the bestselling Miss Bindergarten series collaborate for the first time - Children's Book-of-the-Month Club selection - A poetic lullaby that celebrates relationships between children and animals and also addresses fear of animals

Editorial Reviews

PreSchool-A remarkable marriage of spare, poetic text and luminous, detailed paintings. On full-bleed, double-page spreads, Ryder makes a plea for children to respect animals-both those that are easy to love and those that may be frightening. "Watch out-for toads who lurch/and leap across the road-/please stop to let them pass." The illustration shows a girl holding up her hand to stop an approaching school bus as the creatures leap to safety. The narrative is a natural for reading aloud-it flows smoothly and is full of imagery. Wolff's vibrant, action-packed paintings are familiar and comforting. She incorporates environmentalism in all of the art-children recycle, garden, and enjoy their surroundings. She depicts a variety of habitats and terrains and each phrase is illustrated with children or a family interacting with nature. This book introduces ecological concerns in a way that is natural and clear to youngsters. A wonderful choice for sharing in libraries, with families, for learning to honor each living thing.Susan Marie Pitard, Weezie Library for Children, Nantucket Atheneum, MA
