Review quote

Jenkins' imaginative paper collages work their usual magic in transcending their medium to capture the spirit and detail of their subjects. The real triumph here, however, is the compositions...the book makes brilliantly creative use of its tight focus, resulting in startling closeups. The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, Starred Jenkins' artwork is gorgeous (a gatefold of a frog in midleap is particularly memorable)... An unusual, unusually effective tool for connecting children to nature's astonishing variety. Booklist, ALA, Starred Review A thoroughly engaging read-aloud and a must-have for any collection. School Library Journal
