for Wonder Walkers
by Micha Archer
On a walk, two brown-skinned siblings ask thoughtful, clever questions about the natural world. “Are trees the sky’s legs?” “Is dirt the world’s skin?” “Are shells the shore’s necklace?” “Is the ocean the world’s bath?” Each double-page spread features a single question related to the specifics of what they see as they move through a variety of natural settings near their home, their exchange feeling both serious and playful. The two children are always easy to spot in the colorful, lush multimedia collage illustrations on matte pages, while the spare text is rich with imagination and possibility. (Ages 3-7)

When two curious kids embark on a wonder walk, they let their imaginations soar as they look at the world in a whole new light. They have thought-provoking questions for everything they see: Is the sun the world's light bulb? Is dirt the world's skin? Are rivers the earth's veins? Is the wind the world breathing? I wonder . . . Young readers will wonder too, as they ponder these gorgeous pages and make all kinds of new connections. What a wonderful world indeed!
