Each Living Thing

Overview

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.

Overview

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.

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

Celebrates the creatures of the earth, from spiders dangling in their webs to owls hooting and hunting out of sight, and asks that we respect and care for them.

Editorial Reviews

Susan Marie Pitard
A remarkable marriage of spare, poetic text and luminous, detailed paintings.
School Library Journal
Children's Literature - Children's Literature
This book gets right to heart of deep ecology in language that a preschooler could fully understand. The text is a rhyme urging us to take care of all creatures. It's easy to champion the cause of the Giant Pandas because they are so cute. This book goes way beyond that and champions the cause of spiders, snakes and bats. The paintings are wonderfully colorful and have enough activity to keep the reader searching for new details. This book has the potential to become a classic for the environmental movement. 2000, Gulliver Books/Harcourt, Ages 3 to Adult, $16.00. Reviewer: Seth Berg
Kirkus Reviews
Ryder's rhyming call reminds us to be aware of all living things and to treat them with respect and care. Some things are good to recycle: the bottles in the recycling bin that's carried through mud puddles by a young girl smiling at roadside robins and apple blossoms. Other things should be left as they are: spiders, snakes, and toads crossing the road, as well as the worms, snails, bees, and ants met by a young boy while gardening. As the season and characters change, autumn colors underscore smoke rising from the chimney of a mountain-country house as bears linger in the dusk. At night, owls hoot and hunt, bats flit, and cougars prowl unseen. Another change of characters brings readers to the seashore or to a park in Wolff's (Some Things Go Together, 1999) attractive, full-spread, full-bleed, black gesso and gouache illustrations. Her scenes making evident the variety of life in every environment. "Be aware of them," concludes the text. "Take care of them. Be watchful. Let them be." An idyllic but responsibly conscious view of nature in a book as rich visually as it is textually spare. (Picture book. 3-7). . .
