Best Books for Kids & Teens, Canadian Children’s Book Centre

A playful look at the wonders of nature in three delightful books.

With rich vocabulary and delightful illustrations, the Look Around Books are a perfect way to introduce the beauty and power of nature to young children. Hear the Sea depicts the ocean as a majestic force. Look at the Sky describes the many moods of the skies. And Feel the Wind looks at the tricks the wind plays. These three separate picture books are thematically linked—celebrating the wonders of nature that children encounter in their daily lives—but the rhythm of the text and style of the art are unique to each story.


“[These are] great read-alouds and have a widespread vocabulary. They encourage children to use their imagination and will awaken their appreciation of nature. The illustrations in these titles are majestic and colourful.”
