Product Description

Review

Breathtaking photos and an exquisite poem capture a bug's-eye view of nature... While Frost's lightly rhymed declarative verse encourages children to experience the natural world with care and openness to the tiny wonders of insect life around them, Lieder's richly colored intimate close ups offer every reason why... A dazzlingly poetic photo album of the insect world for tots on up.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Captivating photography gives readers a closeup view of the world of insects, as described by a gently contemplative poem... The words and images achieve a Zenlike calm that also hints at the complicated web of life unfolding all around.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Nature’s miracles are often small and hard to capture, but in a syncopated harmony of text and image, Frost and Lieder manage to depict tiny moments as seen through a bugs-eye-view of the world... Moving from day to night, the poem makes for a soothing bedtime lullaby that includes a reminder to children about the book’s small creatures: "In song and dance / and stillness, / they share the world / with you."
—Booklist (starred review)

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Elaine on May 2 2013
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the most amazing children's books I have read. The photography is absolutely spectacular, the poetry is beautiful, and it is such a great way to get children interested in thinking about the little things around them, particularly insects. My son is 7 years old and loves this book. He has loved insects since he was very young, and he likes to show his friends this book so they will like insects too. As a family who is passionate about educating and bringing awareness to (and protection of) the world of insects and the environment, this book is such a wonderful tool to help with that. For anyone wishing to raise awareness of the importance of insects, whether with adults or with children, this book is a helpful tool. It is a detailed illustration of the beauty in the world around us, if we only stop and look.
