“What’s up if you’re the grass?” It’s all a matter of perspective. Whether you’re a mole, a wildflower, or a butterfly looking up, or the moon, a whale, or an octopus looking down, one’s point of view is dependent upon the surrounding environment. Schaefer’s playful text invites children to explore the natural world on land and in the sea by thinking about answers to the same two questions about specific parts of an interconnected environment. (Ages 3-7)
