You Are Never Alone
The most striking thing about You Are Never Alone would have to be the artwork. Each page is a beautiful collage with images that pop off the page. It almost reminds me of early claymotion movies. The layering of images adds marvelous depth and reality to each page!
Elin Kelsey has created a wonderful book that explores our relationship to the world around us. In a very gentle way, children will learn how we depend on nature for so much of our life. Rain and sun nourish not only plants but are vital to people as well. Plants help create the oxygen we breathe. Earthworms "plow the soil" for the foods in our garden. The fruits we enjoy are pollinated by other helpers in nature.
I love the gentle introduction to science and the awareness of the interdependence of people and nature. The children sprinkled through the book are interacting with birds, and fish and other wildlife to creatively show how nature works together in amazing ways.
Explore the wonder of nature and some adorable kids and wildlife in You Are Never Alone. Readers will enjoy poring over each page again and again, noticing new and intereting things upon each reading.
