Genre: This book would be categorized Informational. It does not tell the reader any new information, but gets the reader to look at the world around them and form questions. In a very subtle and basic way, by simply asking questions, the author gives the reader a new perspective. The point of informational text is to give the reader information in a new and interesting way, which is what this author does.
Medium: acrylic paint and one aspect of ever page is shiny.

Use in a classroom: One us is to help kids begin to ask questions of the world around them. After reading this book, the class could go on their own nature walk and form their own questions. From here you can take the child's ability to ask questions to introduce them to research or you can take it in a science route. They form a question, create predictions, and perform an experiment to find their answers.

Really nice book with gentle open ended discussion questions. WE loved the illustrations the best. The Author/Artist explains his technique in detail and we will definitely be using this book to spring board into a summer painting project. Nicely done! ( )

I love, love, love the illustrations. The texture is amazing. The composition is understated but thoughtful and pleasing, and the colors are bright but not at all crayon-boxy. The technique (acrylic paint stamped onto paper with cardboard shapes) would be super fun to share with kids.

I am feeling too grown-up and pragmatic today, however, to enjoy the questions. ("How do birds learn how to sing? / What brings summer after spring?") I was hoping for more imaginative ones, but I understand that for younger listeners these questions are still full of mystery. I'd bring it out for teachers looking for writing prompts.
