When two curious kids embark on a "wonder walk," they let their imaginations soar as they look at the world in a whole new light. They have thought-provoking questions for everything they see: Is the sun the world's light bulb? Is dirt the world's skin? Are rivers the earth's veins? Is the wind the world breathing? I wonder...Young readers will wonder too, as they ponder these gorgeous pages and make all kinds of new connections. What a wonderful world indeed!

MEDIA REVIEWS
* "Language that is spare and economic yet profound and beautifully poetic. Only wonderstruck children, confronting nature's gorgeous mysteries, could express themselves so intimately, creatively, and originally. Youngsters reading/hearing this book on laps or in groups, and grown-ups, too, will be charmed, enlightened, and moved by these breathless queries. . . . At the book's conclusion, children may want space to discuss, dictate, write, and/or illustrate their own questions/ideas about nature. Luminous ink-and-collage illustrations are lush and vivid, perfectly suiting the text. . . . Excellent for enriching vocabulary, developing creative thinking, and enhancing a love of nature."-Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Some of the queries understand the Earth as one great, living, breathing creature. . . . Sumptuous artwork employs collaged textured and patterned paper to represent rich expanses of sea and sky alongside the individual petals of black-eyed Susans. Asking good questions is at the heart of discovery, and Archer's young wonder walkers show readers how it's done."-Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Archer's collage illustrations, using tissue paper and patterned papers, burst forth with vibrant colors, beguiling textures, and boundless energy. The double-page spreads employ little white space (there's too much of the outdoors to revel in) yet are never too busy; Archer knows just where to direct viewers' eyes. A sense of movement propels the narrative: clouds float; fog blankets the river; ocean waves lap against the shore; and the wind swirls around the children's faces. Beautifully rendered-and wonderful in every way."-Horn Book
