In over 40 poems, old and new, all the delights of the natural world are explored...From the wonder and mystery of towering mountains and swirling constellations to the tiniest of creatures, little grubs that make children gleeful and grownups squirm. Whether the poems are witty or more serious, they each demonstrate the poets' sense of respect and awe for an amazing world. Ruth Rivers' illustrative style is bright and disarmingly simple, providing much to engage the young reader whilst still allowing the words to speak for themselves. Includes poetry by Elizabeth Jennings, e e cummings, Christina Rossetti, Steve Turner, Eleanor Farjeon, and Dorothy Wordsworth amongst others.
