“Isn't it a wonder that out in the pond, smooth wiggly tadpoles lose their tails and grow legs, and turn into frogs? And that fuzzy caterpillars weave silken cocoons around themselves and go to sleep, then wake up as pretty moths or butterflies?”

It’s a rare nonfiction book that’s also a simple, beautiful poem. In this gorgeous Little Golden Book from 1957, Eloise Wilkin’s stunning and realistic artwork is accompanied by gentle text that brings an awe of nature to the youngest readers.

This is a lovely way to teach stories about the natural world to children. From sea shore to forest and beyond, explains the flora and fauna to the little ones, and would lead to a life long appreciation of the animals and trees and living things in all of nature's different environments.
