  • Random House, Inc.
    Stunning close-up photography and a lyrical text implore children to look more closely at the world around them.

    Be still, and watch a single blade of grass.
    An ant climbs up to look around.
    A honeybee flies past.


    What would happen if you walked very, very quietly and looked ever so carefully at the natural world outside? You might see a cricket leap, a moth spread her wings, or a spider step across a silken web. In simple, evocative language, Helen Frost offers a hint at the many tiny creatures around us. And in astonishing close-up photographs, Rick Lieder captures the glint of a katydid's eye, the glow of a firefly, and many more living wonders just awaiting discovery. Fascinating facts about all the creatures pictured may be found at the end.
    Back matter includes descriptions of the insects and spiders in the book.
