Fun, easy to read book about two brothers & their discovery of nature. ( )
  JanetB2 | May 31, 2012 |
This story is about two little boys, Kenny and Mikey, who are ordered to go outside by their mom rather than watch TV. After protesting, their mother gave them the cool surprise of 'lookers' that they could use outside. As they go outside, the boys discover many wonderful things outside with their lookers that they had never noticed before. Best of all, they discover the power of their own eyes.

Very good pictures. i like how they get the children to play outside. I think this book is a good way to get children to look at things more closely when they are outside. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0824956079, Hardcover)

A delightful story that encourages children to put down the TV remotes and video-game controllers and take a look at the wonder of the world around them.

'This grass is amazing!' he suddenly said.
'There are all kinds of things here -- brown, yellow, and red!
There are twig-things and rock-things
And dirt-things and string-things,
Along with a whole lot of little black bug things!'

In The Looking Book, author P. K. Hallinan uses lively rhyming verse to entice children to delight in the wonders of the world around them. Given a pair of 'lookers' by their mom, two boys soon realize that the lookers aren't needed at all. They just need to take the time to step outside, and they will see how much fun they can have.
