This book encourages that no one else can feel or experience things for you. It encourages nature and enjoying the feeling of simple pleasures such as feeling the sun's warmth and smelling flowers. I believe this book would also go well with a Project Learning Tree lesson or any lesson exploring and appreciating nature. ( )

This book is about appreciating one's self an realizing that there are things only you can experience for yourself. I though it was a nice and sweet book, but it did not thrill me. I think children would enjoy it and see that they are individuals who are special. However, this book left me wanting more. It was an easy, quick read. ( )

A great bok for encouraging us to experience things ourselves using all our senses. Nice scaffold for writing poetry. Very cool book. ( )

An appealing invitation to experience and appreciate nature through all the senses. ( )

This book would be great to either read to younger grades or if they are 5th and up they could read it on their own. Maybe students could also talk about a similar experience they have that relates to the book

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 076363848X, Hardcover)

The creators of Grandad’s Prayers of the Earth return with a look at how each person’s experiences in the world are gloriously unique.

Feel the rain kiss your skin or the wind ruffle your hair. Hear the hum of a bumblebee; watch a water strider march across a pond; taste a red, ripe strawberry; whistle with a blade of grass. From Christopher Medal-winning author Douglas Wood and celebrated illustrator P.J. Lynch comes a moving look at the experiences that belong only to us, marking a place on Earth that is ours alone. After all, who but you can remember your own memories? Wonderfully evocative of nature’s sensory treasures, here is a perfect gift to share with a child - or to inspire loved ones of any age as they set out to create their special place in the world.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:10:02 -0400)

Readers are invited to discover nature using their sense of smell, sight, hearing, touch, and taste.
