The drawings are lovely and accompany text regarding a little boy and his mother as they walk to school early in the day.

He is a keen observer and wants to stop and look at the birds who shake their heads and drink water from a puddle; he likes to watch the older women sitting on a bench and observe their body language; he loves to see the cat who is fat and wears a jeweled collar, and he reads the boxes of cereal stacked in the store window.

He intently watches the street cleaner and the water that skirts in the gutters.

While paying attention to his environment he is consistently told by his mother they will be late and not to dawdle.

This is a lovely book, and I like the simplicity and the young boy and his ability to stop and ponder and watch the small things that fill his surroundings. ( )
