Wonderful Nature, Wonderful Youby Karin Ireland
Nature can be a great teacher, reminding us to do things at our own pace and to bloom where we are planted. With a light touch especially suited for children, Karin Ireland explores the lessons of nature and finds their relevance to all of us. She shapes the qualities of nature into a metaphor for positive values and self-esteem. Christopher Canyon captures the spirit of the animals with the same magic he performed illustrating The Tree in the Ancient Forest. . . . Wonderful Nature, Wonderful You is filled with powerful messages that help strengthen children's self-esteem. It stresses perserverance, patience, doing your best, as well as trusting yourself. Sensitively written and flavoured with topical illustrations, this book will captivate, inform and ultimately delight the child in everyone. (Home and School News)
