This extraordinary book succeeds both with its poetry and its incredible art. I love books that open the eyes, and this one with its swirling patterns and earthy shades and multiple perspectives is a delight. The large font is refreshing, and the simple poetry makes this book a nice introduction to the power of language. I love the description of a tornado: "It twists through air with clouds on its tail." Brilliant AND a perfect early introduction to a bit of natural science. 1st grade and up.
