What would happen
if you walked very quietly
and looked carefully
at the world outside?
You might see a cricket leap . . .
Or a spider step across a silken web.
Available everywhere from Candlewick Press.

"One can only hope the present collaboration will be the first of many between nature photographer Lieder and Frost, for the synthesis of word and image in this short picture book is so finely wed that the final page turn leaves one begging for more." – Kirkus
"Working in concert, the words and images achieve a Zenlike calm." – Publisher's Weekly
“Nature’s miracles are often small and hard to capture, but in a syncopated harmony of text and image, Frost and Lieder manage to depict tiny moments as seen through a bugs-eye-view of the world.” – Booklist
“This is a book in stunning image and spare verse about our natural world, a book that reminds me about the magic of that world, and of our role as stewards of our fragile home.” – Richie’s Picks
