From the dream team that brought you Smile Cry (Crystal Kite Award 2017 and 2017 CBC Notable Book) comes another beautiful and whimsical book for little people. A sensory exploration of the world around us using the senses of sight and hearing is a perfect way to have children calm from their busy day and take notice of the wonder that surrounds them. Engaging with this depth of sensory delights is often overlooked in favour of having small people do more phonics or reach another ‘reading level’. It’s well and truly time to teach them about being human as well!
“Heavenly horses…..squiggly rain……buzzing blossoms….” all combine to give readers a really magical experience and give rise to many various points of discussion.
One of the greatest gifts we can give to children is to ‘wonder’ at the bounteous offerings of their world and encourage their appreciation of all that it can offer.
Highly recommended for your collection whether in a kindy, child care centre or lower primary school – as well as a splendid gift for special little people in your circle.
