Step Gently Out

By Helen Frost
Illustrated by Rick Lieder

“A dazzlingly poetic photo album of the insect world for tots on up.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

What would happen if you walked very, very quietly and looked carefully at the natural world outside? You might see a cricket leap, a moth spread her wings, or a spider step across a silken web. In simple, evocative language, Helen Frost hints at the many tiny creatures around us, while in stunning close-up photographs, Rick Lieder captures a katydid's eye, a firefly, and many more living wonders awaiting discovery. Back matter amplifies the descriptions of the insects and spiders in the book.

  • Utterly amazing nature photography paired with a lovely, lyrical text by a Printz Honor-winning poet.
  • Encourages children to get out and explore the natural world around them.
  • Includes back matter with interesting factual information about each of the species photographed.
