Sidman, Joyce. Butterfly Eyes and Other Secrets of the Meadow. Houghton Mifflin Books: New York, 2006. ISBN 061856313X
A book of poems and riddles about the creature you can find in a meadow. With beautiful illustrations and captivating poetry, children get to explore and think about the world around them.
All of the poems and riddles are absolutely beautiful. They are very consistent in their quality and their enjoyment. Most of the poems do have a rhyme scheme. Some of them don’t, but they are still just as beautiful. I love that this book gives you a look at the world around you. It makes you think about who and what is out there. Accompanied with gorgeous illustrations, this book is a delight.
