The author/illustrator uses cutouts to create this book about nature. It is appropriate for very young children, up to 5 years old.

This book takes a beginning reader through a journey of cut-out pages with shapes, bugs, and fruits. The book introduces what the world is made of from a toddler's eyes: bugs, fruit, sun, moon, stars, etc. Each page has a cut-out to describe one or two words.I would use this book as a read aloud to a group of preschool-aged children. The colorful pages and cut-outs would hold their attention. This would be a great book for emerging readers.In the classroom: In a pre-kindergarten setting I would use this book to introduce a "how to use scissors" unit with shapes and colors. Let each child pick his/her favorite color of paper (correctly identified), demonstrate proper use of scissors, and allow students to cut the shape of the week, creating a puzzle.

This is a book is a picture book that shows what we see from day to day in a really interesting way. There are bugs, flowers, stars, rain, and so much more.I really enjoyed the cut outs in this book. It was really interestin to watch as something took shape from what was before it and after it.In the classroom you could do a unit on nature using this book to introduce it. You could also use this book to inspire art projects with the many ideas and colors that are used in the illustrations.
