Step Gently Out
by Helen Frost

Abilene Mockingbird Award
TLA 2x2 Award

If you walked into a meadow, what do you think you would see?
Would you see bears and tigers or butterflies and bees?
What kinds of plants would be growing on the ground?

What kinds of insects would be buzzing all around?
Should you walk with heavy steps, crushing flowers in the dust?
Or should you walk gently, to save life that in you trusts?
What kind of insect would be flashing its own light?

What kind of insect sings with all its might?
What is that creature that spins silken threads
Hoping to catch a tasty bug in her spiral web?
Why is their life being busy in the flower?
What part do bugs play in sharing flower power?
Now you can step into a book that shows life all about

Open your eyes, take a deep breath, and Step Gently Out.

The beautiful Step Gently Out is filled with colorful close-up photographs of flowers, plants, and bugs including lightning bugs, spiders, bees, moths, crickets, dragonflies, and a praying mantis. What an excellent introduction to nature!
