Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This gorgeously illustrated volume of poetry — sprinkled with facts and fun things to do — sows an early love for nature in all its beauty and wonder.

The buzz of bees in summertime. The tracks of a bird in the winter snow. This beautiful book captures all the sights and sounds of a childs interactions with nature, from planting acorns or biting into crisp apples to studying tide pools or lying back and watching the birds overhead. No matter whats outside their windows — city streets or country meadows — kids will be inspired to explore the world around them. Written by award-winning author Nicola Davies and illustrated by Mark Hearld, a breathtaking new talent in childrens books, Outside Your Window is a stunning reminder that the natural world is on our doorstep waiting to be discovered.

Review:

"Divided into seasons, this visceral introduction to the wonders of nature explores cycles and the passage of time through rich, textural images and thoughtful poems. Spring is 'the busiest season.' Icicles melt, frogs lay eggs, and birds migrate: 'They've flown so far!/ Over forests, mountains, deserts, seas.' Summer is 'Time to look at the sky/ and dream,' explore tide pools, and build dens. With fall come new observations ('They're not animals, and they're not plants./ They're something else — / they're fungi: toadstools, mushrooms, molds'), and in winter 'Patchwork pigeons, made of sky,/ catch the rain clouds when they fly.' Debut talent Hearld layers his organic tableaux with matte, paper-cut collages, woodcuts, and other mixed-media techniques, complementing the album of ideas, images, and moods created by Davies's evocative poetry. Ages 3 — up." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

In this rhyming poetic picture book, exploreand#160;the wonders ofand#160;natural cooperation between plants, animals and insects.

Synopsis:

In this nonfiction picture book for young readers,and#160;we learn just why the mother nesting bird stays quiet and still while sitting onand#160;her eggs. Shh. . . .

Synopsis:

Woodpecker calls from a tree, "cuk-cuk-cuk." Starling sings, "whistle-ee-wee." But have you heard the nesting bird?

In this book, we hear all the different bird calls in counterpoint to the pervasive quiet of a mama bird waiting for her eggs to hatch. Fun and informative back matter takes the shape of an interview so that readers learn more right from the bird's bill. Ken Pak's lively illustrations, paired with Rita Gray's words, render a visual and sonorous picture book to be enjoyed by young naturalists.

Synopsis:

Bear is a rambling musician. An entertainer. A legend. One Bear Extraordinaire.

Bear wakes up one morning with a song in his head, but something is missing. Whatandrsquo;s a one-bear band to do? He travels the forest in search of his song and meets a few other musicians along the way, but even with their help, his song still feels incomplete. Will Bear find the perfect accompaniment and learn that every song sounds sweeter with friends by his side?

Jayme McGowan brings Bear and his merry band to life with intricate and innovative threedimensional cut-paper art that is nothing short of extraordinary.
