This is the perfect picture book to read together before bed. French illustrator Joelle Jolivet is know for her large format visual dictionaries, and the same bright, rustic artwork enlivens every page here. The writing is simple and rhythmic: I am in the poppy, said the bee. I am in the sky, said the cloud. Some of the examples are surprising: where would you guess you'll find the pebble, or the hole? This book will no doubt inspire plenty of discussions over everyday discoveries after reading. I felt a pleasant sense of order and calm with every page, leading to a gratifying end.— EMMY'S STAFF PICKS
I am in the poppy, said the bee. I am in the nest, said the bird. I am in space, said the planet . . .
