The Whisper of Nature

This large-scale non-fiction picture book invites its readers to be more mindful of nature and the environment with poetic texts and atmospheric illustrations.
Life is often so busy that we forget to take pause and appreciate all the small wonders surrounding us. So how about we slow down and explore nine different habitats – the forest, meadow, lake, river, sea, mountains, city, park, and garden? Let’s walk barefoot along the beach, collect stones at the riverside, observe tiny animals that live in the garden, or make art with leaves and other natural resources one can find in the forest! There are so many options to connect with nature.
