Step Gently Out

author: Helen Frost
illustrator: Rick Lieder

series name:
Step Gently, Look Closely

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)
