Step Gently Out
author: Helen Frost
illustrator: Rick Lieder
What would happen if you walked very, very quietly and looked 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 hints at the many tiny creatures around us, while in stunning close-up photographs, Rick Lieder captures a katydid's eye, a firefly, and many more living wonders awaiting discovery. Back matter amplifies the descriptions of the insects and spiders in the book.
“A dazzlingly poetic photo album of the insect world for tots on up.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
