Publisher Description

Nature's beauty is captured in twelve thoughtful poems and breathtaking pictures in this winner of the John Burroughs Nature Books for Young Readers Award. Watery reflections provide an appropriate backdrop for author Jane Yolen's musings on nature, such as a raccoon swimming with his reflected self, the water-jagged legs of a snowy egret, and the double danger of a hungry alligator at the edge of a swamp. Jason Stemple's photographs offer whimsical peeks at the natural world we rarely chance to see. This artistic collaboration gives a unique opportunity to think about the world.

Author Biography

Jane Yolen is a poet and author of children's books, fantasy, and science fiction. She has been called the Hans Christian Andersen of America and the Aesop of the twentieth century, and her books and stories have won numerous awards, including the Caldecott Medal, two Nebula Awards, and two Christopher Medals, among many others.

Review

"Italicized captions on each poem's page add information about the pictured animal, making this a good volume - along with other titles by this mother-son team - for teachers wanting to connect science and poetry." --Kirkus Reviews

"Drawn by the rich play in words and pictures, kids will see reflections, strange and beautiful, in the natural world." --Booklist

  • "This collection is a gem. . . . Stemple's photographs startle the reader with the extraordinary beauty of the ordinary things, and Yolen's poems are laced with humor (sometimes wry, sometimes overt) and with environmental undercurrents." --Publishers Weekly, starred review
