User Review  - matthewbloome - LibraryThing

A book with a tremendous ecological focus, this is a simple plea by the author for people to mindful of the natural world that surrounds them, to learn to appreciate without damaging it, and it works. Good for a read aloud length and excellent if you need something to read around Earth Day. Read full review
