Editorial Reviews

“A terrific choice to encourage children (and their hovering adults) to discover the wonders of the world around them. . . . Adorable babies and toddlers are shown observing, mimicking, and/or tenderly handling a furry caterpillar, buttercups, a baby bird, and a bitty snail. The repetitive words and sweet images capture this enchanted world of discovery.”—School Library Journal“This gentle rhyming book, featuring a racially diverse collection of small children, highlights the fascination children feel for creatures even smaller than themselves. . . . Engaging artwork underscores a valuable message about the joys of close observation.”—Booklist“Happy, curious toddlers of different races revel in the wonder of the natural world as they encounter small creatures, a willow tree, buttercups, etc. . . A visually inviting book that would make a great addition to toddler storytime.”—The Horn Book Guide
