This a book of beautiful poems about nature. They are short and very descriptive. These are not rhyming poems. They are for children but adults will enjoy the language. Georgia Herd uses interesting text shaping as can be done in poetry. This makes a nice connection to print awareness and noticing features of written text.

These poems can be acted out.
