"The imagery is fresh and original; it's accessible, too. Watercolor images of each poem's subject add to the appeal."
"Dip into this appealing collection for an introduction to early nature studies or poetry writing, or for generating some well-deserved enthusiasm for a stroll in the great outdoors."
"The verses are approachable for readers and vivid for readaloud listeners, so this is a title with a broad spread of possible use. Even if there's no nearby forest, just have the kids close their eyes, listen to the poetry, and imagine that there is."
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The book is an inviting tour for those who enjoy observing the natural world through poetry."
—School Library Journal

Taken from the inside jacket “Take a walk in the forest. Have a chat with a chickadee, watch the fiddleheads unfurl, discover a fossil, hear what a young owl tells its mother before its first flight."
Why I liked this book –This is an awesome book! I love the art and the poems! This is indeed a “perfect picture book”! The message is great (and important) because it talks about getting kids out and enjoying nature, and really paying attention to it. I like that it is told from the girl character’s point of view. I like that the dog is practically always with the girl and that the girl is anonymous. This is a wonderful book. I think that kids and parents will like love this book!
**NOTE I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
