The author of Song of the Water Boatman and Other Pond Poems (2005), this former Caldecott honoree delivers poems that bring the wonders of nature to life. The compelling lives of animals in a nocturnal forest are captured in poetry and are enhanced by prose sections filled with engaging real-life facts.
