KIRKUS REVIEW

The team work between nature writer Hay and photographer Strong produces a book of pictures and ext which reflect the discoveries and exploration of children who stop to look, listen, feel and even taste the varieties of natural life along ponds, brooks and the shore. The boys and girls are pictured, without any feeling of posing, as they meet the various forms of life, scrutinize the individual characteristics and habits of plants, insects, rocks, trees, tides; they follow tracks and look at the many kinds of habitations; they inspect the particular needs and places that background a subject. The running text and picture captions point up factual material that answers question while maintaining the wonder to be found in the life of nature. A graphic presentation that avoids arty touches, this is an able outdoor study-recognition book for parents and children along northeastern coastal areas.
