Book: Finding Wild by Megan Wagner Lloyd
Genre: Picture book
I've rarely done a picture book review, mostly because I've been out of that genre forever and it's not often I have a chance or opportunity to read one these days! Most awesomely I'm getting back into that now that I have a baby girl in my life again, even if I won't get to see her much. I'll be on the look out!
The other day at book club one of our members gave us copies of this picture book that her sister has written. And so here are my thoughts!
It's a lovely story about two kids who go on a walk and discover all the cool things that are wild out in the world.
It contrasts things in nature that are both tiny and soft and fragile and those that are prickly and itchy and stingy. It makes use of all the senses and really makes a case for all the things you can experience out on a walk.
But then there's the problem of nature and wild things in a city. Is it there? Yes, of course it is!
Bottom Line: Cute story with fun colorful pictures all about nature and how it's everywhere around us.
And hopefully it will make kids want to get off that couch and go play outside. From Alternate Readality
...a delightful gift for anyone with an affinity for determined city blossoms and wide, green spaces. From Book Page
