C.H This is a picture book of a young girl who learns from a wise woman the capacity of wandering and wondering. The text is useful for the introduction of a social studies unit to build classroom community. The “the secret of wisdom is to continue to wander and wonder” easily becomes a class motto to build an inquiry stance and attitude toward investigating life.
