Product Details


Elliott invites readers into another poetic exploration of the natural world. . . With each page-turn, Elliott’s sensory verse introduces a new resident of this habitat. . . Richly textured mixed-media illustrations present views of the pond and its inhabitants throughout the day. . . a celebration of observation, and readers will surely heed the beckoning call of that red-winged blackbird beyond the book’s pages.

—The Horn Book

A lovely picture book about plants and animals native to pond ecosystems. . . . The mixed-media illustrations are vibrant and detailed and, like the poems, capture the interplay between the various entities that share the pond habitat. . . Perfect for reading out loud.

Elliott’s appreciative introduction to animals at a pond invites observation and enjoyment. . . . Schimler-Safford’s skillful collage conveys setting and animals with beauty, energy, and bits of humor.
—School Library Journal

Whimsical, energetic, impressionistic poems and luminous, layered illustrations bring the world of a pond to life and show how its inhabitants move, behave, and interact throughout the day. . . these are evocative, memorable, and gently humorous poems that artfully capture the atmosphere and details of the environment. . . these poems showcase the natural world in breathtaking detail.
