Description
Jane Yolen and Jason Stemple join forces again in this new winning combination of poems and photos . Water possesses reflective qualities, creating fascinating patterns and doubled images that allow us to see things in new ways. Celebrated writer Jane Yolen and photographer Jason Stemple capture these natural beauties in twelve thoughtful poems and breathtaking pictures in this winner of the John Burroughs Nature Books for Young Readers Award. Watery reflections provide an appropriate backdrop for Jane's musings on nature, such as a raccoon swimming with his reflected self, the water-jagged legs of a snowy egret, and the double danger of a hungry alligator at the edge of a swamp. Jason's photographs offer whimsical peeks at the natural world we rarely chance to see. This artistic collaboration gives readers a unique opportunity to contemplate their world. A Solitary Cockle O to be a solitary cockle Sitting silent in reflection, Somewhat open to the moment, Somewhat into introspection. Never needing to be acting, Never having to be hammy, Just a solitary bivalve In the water, silent ... clammy. --FROM THE BOOK
