Product Details

Praise

A wee paean to the glories of nature, in an accessible format. There are very few words, lightly rhymed and slightly chunky: “I love our Earth / when summer stars flicker, / and autumn leaves flame, / when winter flakes blow, / and spring blossoms show.” The photographs, however, show several strengths. Each spread comprises a nature photo occupying a page plus half the facing page: mountain, sunset, ocean, snow. The other half-page contains the text and a small photo of a child, alone or with an adult. Each one of the pictures featuring a child invokes a color or a tone from the facing nature image, as when a ruddy moppet’s green t-shirt picks up the great green of a meadow. Ecology for the very young.
