I want to like this book more than I do, but it isn't quite right. It has some nice things about it, but the quirkiness isn't really quirky enough for me.
When the family goes on their daily walks, they each find different treasures to appreciate along the way.

A great little book about the treasures you can find when you go for a walk!
Follow a family on their nature walks and see what can be made out of the many tresures they find.

This book has a great family at the center of it and they are spending quality time together interacting with nature, but the pacing is strange and the treasures don't amount to a fantastically wonderful necessary thing, which is what I was expecting.

Love recycling stories!

Neat book about a strolling family noticing things in their environment while the little girl collects found objects and eventually creates cool interactive art. (I think "On Rambling Road" would be a more distinctive title.)
This is such a joyful and uplifting book with wonderful illustrations. However my neatnik compulsion comes through as I am reading wondering where is all of the items being collected by Wendy going to end up - can you say "hoarder"?? This reminds to me too much of my mother-in-law. If you can ignore that idea while reading this book, it is nice family book.
A family goes on walks throughout the seasons and the daughter collects things as they go. Then come winter when it is too cold to go outside the girl uses the things she has collected to recreate the road in her room and allow her family to have the same experience as when they are out walking.

The rhythm of the text is somehow awkward, but I love the concepts. And as the seasons change, there is lots to look at and talk about in the pictures. This might inspire art projects with "found" objects, and perhaps even family walks to discover new things in the neighborhood.

Enjoyed by 2-3 4 year old grandkids. Nice story of family taking a walk together in all seasons. I appreciate family oriented books.
I was hoping for something more remarkable to come of all the protagonist's collecting. Might work for an Earth Day request.

eh. neat collage-y pictures. family exploring and walking, too long to read in storytime. kinda underwhelming.
Fun extension activity ideas.
