by | Read by John McDonough

Children Ages 4-6 • 4 mins. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator John McDonough's resonant voice eloquently expands the observations that award-winning author Cynthia Rylant shares with young listeners in her tribute to the natural world. Listeners will hear about the small beginnings of life, the myriad things to love and protect in every habitat on earth, the circular nature of life, and the importance of waking up and embracing each new day. The author encourages children to imagine day and night, storm and calm, and the inner worlds of each of the creatures one sees while exploring nature. McDonough is majestically leisurely in his delivery, providing long pauses for contemplation and appreciation of Rylant's imagery. If available, listeners will also relish Brendan Wenzel's illustrations. A.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2018]
