The water color illustrations in this book are vivid, bold, and realistic depictions of many different types of animals in their natural habitats. The text is written in lyrical, rhyming prose. Arnosky allows the reader to make connections between tasks in their own routines, such as getting a drink of water from the faucet to tasks in the animals routines such as a deer in the forest sipping water from a pond. The story inspires reverence and care for animals and the natural world we all inhabit. Wonderful platform for a science unit studying animals, natural habitats, or it could tie in to language arts study of rhyme.

A beautiful depiction of what animals are doing throughout the day at the same time as us. It relates our lives to nature and helps us see a connection between us. This would be a great study for a classroom. Students could choose an animal from the book and explore more facts or daily routines. ( )

No one creates better nature books for young children than Jim Arnosky. ( )

Another beautiful, flowing book honoring nature and her creatures. Arnosky encourages children to relate to animals and respect the environment through his text and gorgeous paintings. Added informational notes at the end of the book can trigger research. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525422528, Hardcover)

Using gentle, rhythmic text and gorgeous watercolor paintings, Jim Arnosky invites young readers to imagine what wondrous things animals are doing across the globe. While you might be sweating in the middle of the afternoon, an owl has found a cool hiding place inside a cactus. And while you're filling up on dinner, puffins are swooping down on the ocean by the cliffs to catch fish. It's an amazing world out there-at this very moment.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:07:34 -0400)

Identifies some of the things happening in nature while one goes about an ordinary day, such as a shark circling a reef while one brushes one's teeth, or puffins eating fresh-caught fish while one eats dinner.
