The world around us is celebrated in this new collection of thirty-eight original poems. Constance Levy's thoughtful words and clear images allow us to experience the small details of everyday things, like the lingering fragrance of mint after rubbing a mint leaf between your fingers, while at the same time offering up humor-touched insights into how ordinary things may be extraordinary. For example, wouldn't a round, lacy spiderweb make the perfect cloth for a manhole cover?

Illustrated with softly-rendered black-and-white drawings, these verses will stir young readers' imaginations and deepen their appreciation of the natural world.
