for Least Things by Jane Yolen and Jason Stemple
The smallest of nature's wonders are treated with reverence, sensitivity, and gentle humor in this new collection of poems by celebrated writer Jane Yolen. Accompanied by Jason Stemple's extraordinary photographs, these fourteen poems, all in haiku form, eloquently capture common creatures in all their humility, quirkiness, and splendor. Young readers can easily identify the tree frog, snail, grasshopper, hummingbird, spider, and other tiny subjects while delighting in these thoughtful poetic gems filled with simple words and abundant imagination.
