Lieder again demonstrates that he is not only a master of catching light where it falls, but capturing intimate moments only the most patient of observers would notice…Frost notes "New life is everywhere — / open your eyes." Descriptive endnotes lend additional context to the species on display. Stunning as ever: another irresistible imperative from Frost and Lieder to get up and out into nature.

The collaboration of poet Frost and photographer Lieder continues in this handsome volume celebrating new life emerging in the natural world…An inherently joyful celebration of new life, this picture book is a natural for spring read-aloud sessions.
Young children will love identifying the creatures that they see on the pages and guessing at the riddlelike stanzas of the poem…A delightful combination of fine poetry and photography, this is a seasonal treat that should be shared widely.
