Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

A stunning new picture book that serves as a spectacular meditation on the wonders of nature. 

From Werner Zimmermann, the bestselling and award-winning illlustrator of Pippin the Christmas Pig and A Porcupine in a Pine Tree, comes a new book featuring lush artwork and a peaceful tale about life in the wild.

This lovely story details a day at the pond, and young readers will love counting the fish, and spotting other familiar natural beings. Throughout the story, the sun moves across the sky, and as it does, an entire ecosystem changes. The gorgeous paintings take centre stage, as children and adults alike, will delight in seeing the flora and fauna interact over the course of a single day.

This timely book will encourage readers to notice the living, breathing world around them, and think about all of the beauty a day can bring.
