Summary: These thirty brief poems celebrate all different things you might see in the air: the sun, butterflies, leaves, birds, and more. Each poem is just four lines: “Sunflower, standing/taller than me,/what do you see/ that I can’t see?” and is accompanied by an illustration. Most pages contain two related poems (sunflowers and honeybees) that can be shown in the same picture. 40 pages; ages 3-8.
Pros: A good first poetry book, with short rhyming poems that describe everyday topics. The illustrations show a diverse group of kids enjoying the outdoors.
Cons: This felt like a celebration of nature, yet a few of the subjects (kites, balloons, helicopters, paragliding, and fireworks) were about human-made objects.
