Summer Walk

We rated this book:


A grandmother and her grandchildren are having a summer walk through the woods. They see lots of creatures and they talk about them. The grandmother tries to teach her grandchildren a little about some of the things they see, like about a caterpillar becoming a butterfly – but she isn’t exactly right, for example because caterpillars don’t ‘weave’ their chrysalis.

This book has rhyming couplets; they weren’t very good, because they didn’t have very good rhythm, but they are cute. The line drawings of the children are very fun because it showed the nice, loving relationship between the grandmother and her grandchildren as they go on a nature walk. The best pictures are of the bugs and creatures they see – ant, beetle, ladybug, walking stick, and lots of others. For some reason a snail is included in the list of bugs. That really doesn’t fit– snails are not bugs! The bug (and snail) pictures are colorful and glossy, which is very pretty against the drawings of the people walking in the woods behind them.

This isn’t a book to learn about creatures, but it is a sweet story about a nice summer walk.
