Gentle rhyming couplets invite young children to contemplate the magic of nature in this book that lends itself to developing a sense of awe and wonder in young children. Leading such busy lives at the end of the millennium we all need to be reminded to stop to appreciate the wonders of the natural world. The lyrical and thought provoking text is printed in large font, making this an ideal book for an individual child, or group, to share with an adult. The vibrant yet soft pastel illustrations are truly magnificent examples of the use of light and shade. There is real richness, gentle movement and expert use of unusual perspective in each spread, as the reader is encouraged to 'look and listen high and low. God's quiet things are yours to know.' The various scenes are carefully and unobtrusively linked by a boy, out flying his kite, accompanied by his attentive cat. Simply stunning, these illustrations are so subtle that you really need to study them closely to appreciate their true beauty.
