From James Howe, the bestselling author of Bunnicula, comes a beautiful picture book story about looking, observing, and finding wonder in the things that we walk right past every day—featuring full-color illustrations by Sakika Kikuchi.
Every morning, Milo goes walking with his mother. There are so many things to see.
While Milo was sleeping, the rain left a puddle for him to find. “Hello, Milo,” he says to the boy in the puddle.
When Milo listens closely, he hears bees. They have a lot to say.
The tree in the park looks sad today. “It’s okay,” Milo whispers. “I will see you tomorrow and you will be happy.”
Each day is full of possibilities when Milo goes walking: new things to observe, old things to see in a new way, the magical “maybes” of his imagination—and what we might find tomorrow.
"Combined with the quiet text, the book celebrates a world that seems alive in every way, and is full of gifts for all who take the time to notice."
"An enchanting invitation to go outside, take in nature…and enjoy every moment of it."
"The softly colored illustrations, rendered in pencil and watercolor, reflect the warmth of the mother-son relationship and the beauty they see as they walk."
While never using the term the five senses, Howe’s text naturally introduces them in affable, authentic-sounding dialogue and narration.
