A stunning debut picture book that teaches children about the beauty to be found in the smallest creatures and simplest pleasures nature has to offer.

On an ambling walk, a child discovers they hold the promise of larger worlds—forests and meadows—in the palm of their hand. An acorn becomes a tree within a woodland wonderland. A grain of sand becomes a sandcastle in a kingdom of imagination. By exploring nature’s tiniest details, they learn even small things, including them, contain infinite potential.

  • “Everything in this story is connected to everything else. Every item in the book, even a grain of sand, is as beautiful in both its simplicity and complexity. Readers will close this book loving their small part of the world a little more.”
    Kirkus Reviews
  • “This is an excellent addition to libraries that have an active children’s programming calendar, especially one that emphasizes tactile experiences which this book so colorfully explores. The overarching theme of a child’s endless need to know more is a welcome message to all curious kids, particularly those who are active in the outdoors. An appreciation of nature is sure to follow any reader who ambles through this tale.”
