Summary
Detailed collage illustrations accompanied by simple text present expanding views of familiar objects in nature, such as a bug and a flower
Summary
Imagine a picture of a vibrant flower garden buzzing with bees and a-flutter with butterflies and birds. That's where this book ends in its final illustration -- but it starts zoomed in so close that all viewers see is a black dot on a red background, which turns out to be a ladybug. Clear enough to communicate to very young children the concept of things looking different depending on one's distance from them, A Closer Look is recommended for children ages two and up. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
