I am always telling children, "Leave the flower for the bees" or "Don't hurt the bug for doing what a bug does." Children are interested and curious. They are always asking important questions about what they observe. This picturebook nurtures a child's understanding and respect for living things in their natural habitat. Simple text, sweet monster learning to be an ecologist, and delicate vingnettes pull together a message of looking closer at the world around you. When we see or experience a beautiful moment in nature, we keep it safely tucked away in our hearts and schema. It is with us always.
