About this item

Stunning collage art full of rich color, glorious details, and a sense of wonder - reminiscent of the work of Ezra Jack Keats - illustrate this delightful story celebrating the poetry found in the world around us.

What is poetry? Is it glistening morning dew? Spider thinks so. Is it crisp leaves crunching? That's what Squirrel says. Could it be a cool pond, sun-warmed sand, or moonlight on the grass? Maybe poetry is all of these things, as it is something special for everyone - you just have to take the time to really look and listen. The magical thing is that poetry is in everyone, and Daniel is on his way to discovering a poem of his own after spending time with his animal friends. What is poetry? If you look and listen, it's all around you!
