A Fawn in the Grass
An intriguing journey into the natural world -- from deep in the grass to high overhead.
"There's a worm on a string,
who is swaying in space.
There's a white butterfly
on a circle of lace."
As a young child takes a walk in the woods, the world comes alive with creatures and treasures big and small -- from ants and lizards to moles and hawks. But the most special discovery of the day is the fawn in the grass who watches the narrator's journey begin and end.
Joanne Ryder's lyrical text and Keiko Narahashi's beautifully detailed illustrations capture the wonders of nature from a child's point of view.
