This poetic celebration of animals large and small reminds us that while some creatures are cuddly and companionable, others can be ferocious, helpless, or shy. No matter how creepy, slimy, mean, or odd an animal might seem, they all need us to be considerate of them. As a day moves gently from morning to night, a variety of children interact with--or keep a respectful distance from--creatures in their natural environments. Ashley Wolff's luscious, exquisitely detailed illustrations and Joanne Ryder's lyrical text inspire a sense of wonder at the animal world around us. •An acclaimed nonfiction author and the illustrator of the bestselling Miss Bindergarten series collaborate for the first time • Children's Book-of-the-Month Club selection • A poetic lullaby that celebrates relationships between children and animals and also addresses fear of animals
