Such a needed message about slowing down enough to appreciate the little things around us. After all, are not the little things what life is truly about? Is this mindfulness? It's good to be reminded we are part of the world ... not apart from it. Interesting illustrations ... beetle-like, insect-like ... a comment on human-kind as a social organism perhaps?
I loved this book. My nearly-3-year-old daughter and I read it so many times she could recite most of the words. A lovely story, but also a wonderful inspiration to live life intentionally. Illustrations were wonderful too - very striking. We borrowed this from the library, but I liked it so much I will buy a copy.
The unique illustrations in this book are adorable! A sweet book with a wonderful reminder to slow down the pace of life so you don't miss all the beautiful things that might just be whizzing past you.

I thought this was a sweet book, about going out and experiencing the world while walking to school. Rather then just sitting in a machine (car) and watching the world fly by.
I thought the illustrations were great too.
