In a warm voice filled with wonder, poet Kevin Young (BROWN) reads his ode to finding peace and belonging in nature. Young boy Emile falls in love with a field and chronicles its changing seasons as he spends time there--yellow flowers and bumblebees in spring, snow in winter. Snow, though, "meant Emile had to share the field with sleds and other loud kids who rode the face of the field without Emile's say-so." With gentle wisdom, Emile's father explains that sharing and caring for the field will preserve it, and Emile comes to understand that the "field would not, could not, be bought, or belong to anyone." Young listeners should follow along with the picture book to appreciate the illustrations, and to be inspired to seek out their own magical corners of the natural world.
