Butterfly Eyes and Other Secrets of the Meadow

$17.99 USD
What creature sees colors that humans can't? What insect hides in a nest of bubbles? What plant is poisonous to all nibblers but one? Discover the hidden world of the meadow in this unique combination of poetry riddles and science wisdom. Beginning with the rising sun and ending with twilight, this book takes us on a tour through the fields, encouraging us to watch for a nest of rabbits, a foamy spittlebug, a leaping grasshopper, bright milkweed, a quick fox, and a cruising hawk. With outstanding scratchboard illustrations that capture the lush tapestry of a meadow and with poetry both enchanting and precise, this book reveals not only how things of the glade are dependent upon one another, but how this world is a surprising and ever-changing drama.
