Beautiful illustrations are the highlight of this gentle story about a boy and his mother exploring the wildlife in a pond.

This is a beautiful picture book that exposes readers to lots of different freshwater wildlife. I like that the book can clearly transition between age groups, a picture book with more detail for older children in the back and suggested future readings. Take a peek and then go out for a canoe ride on Powderhorn Lake or Lake of the Isles to bring the book to life.

This is a beautiful picture book showcasing the hidden world under the surface of a pond.

This book is beautiful and the narrative has a "circle of life" feel that will be entertaining and very informative for a young reader. The length of the book is also important to the visuals to get a sense of equity when viewing over the pond and under the pond.
