Step Gently Out

23 Jul

Step Gently Out written by Helen Frost with photography by Rick Lieder is a beautifully written poem about being outside and noticing the small things in nature.  The brief, descriptive language is paired beautifully with close-up photography of insects in nature.  At the end of the poem there is a section that details each insect pictured throughout the book giving brief information that children might be curious to know.  This is wonderful book to share with young children who are fascinated with bugs or can be shared with young elementary children for a great lesson in poetry.
