Don't Step on the Sky is a book of beautiful nature-inspired haiku's. Each poem addresses a different aspect of the natural world, from the beauty of daybreak to the happy songs of birds, to the wonder of seeing the sky reflected in a puddle. This was such a lovely book and is likely to inspire an appreciation of nature in all who read it. ( )

This is a book full of haiku poems, which are mostly about nature and can be serious or funny. A traditional haiku has three lines with first line containing five syllables, second line seven syllables, third line five syllables, and the last line is usually surprising. This book has haiku poems that are funny, deep, and strongly tied to nature. This would be a good book to show many examples of how haiku poems can be interesting and fun. ( )
