Description


A beautiful story that humbly conveys the importance of paying attention to nature. 

"★A gentle reminder to appreciate the natural world and its creatures." -- School Library Journal
An ABC Best Books for Young Readers selection


While you're away from nature, doing other things, amazing wonders are happening all around you. Deer are sniffing out berries, squirrels are chasing each other, and owls are waiting for their moment to fly. Even if you don't happen to notice them, these little miracles happen every day. And if you stop to watch and listen carefully, you may very well see some of them.

"[A] meditation on the natural world....By cataloguing small, everyday occurrences, the creators invite readers to imagine, and perhaps to regard, tantalizing moments in nature." -- Publishers Weekly



"The art is fantastic. . .  where each turn of the page is surprising. . .  The book is a series of discoveries, much like sitting in nature can be.An inviting look at nature and how it carries on whether you are there or not." -- Waking Brain Cells
