In the Meadow is our first book in our Being in the World series, a collection of nature books from Japan. Each book will focus on what it feels like to be in a particular place. In this book, a little girl experiences what it’s like to be alone in a field where the grass is as tall as she is and there are many insects and sounds. The book ends on a peaceful note, with mommy and daughter together.
