Lake : a see to learn book

Image of item
Book
Lake: A See to Learn Book is the second title in a series of non-fiction picture books for very young children that uses lyrical language to encourage a sensitive perception of the natural world and a caring connection with it. The text asks young readers to consider what they see and experience at a lake through the seasons -- from dragonflies and hummingbirds in summer, to crimson leaves in fall, to goslings on the lake's icy surface in winter, to moose calves by the water's edge in spring -- drawing local connections alongside those of a global sensibility. Gorgeous illustrations show a child and grownup appreciating the lake's beauty, learning its secrets and enjoying moments of wonder, all first steps toward developing a lifelong awareness of our interconnectedness to the Earth and our impact on the environment.
