A lyrical nonfiction celebration of the outdoors pairing childlike observation with facts about the natural world

you notice things.

Time spent in the outdoors stirs a child’s imagination. Nature sparks wonder, wonder leads to curiosity, and curiosity brings about a greater knowledge of the world and one’s self. In Outside, You Notice, a meditative thread of child-like observations (How after the rain / Everything smells greener) is paired with facts about the habits and habitats of animals, insects, birds, and plants (A tree’s roots reach as wide as its branches).

One of the themes of this book is nature. Find out why Laura and Ruby chose Outside You Notice as a great book for primary readers
