In the rock pools, at the zoo, in the mountains and the fields and even in our urban streets creatures and plants are at work eating, sleeping, reproducing and living incredible lives. Sandra Morris sets out to successfully open children’s eyes to the natural world around them by encouraging them to look and to record their findings. A special book that will light many candles and the outcomes will grow in value. It’s a book for an adult to share with a child or as a valuable classroom resource.
