A little boy and his grandfather are going to take a walk in the woods. Grandfather tells the boy they need to be very, very quiet on their walk if they are going to be able to see animals, but the dry, winter grass crunches and the frozen puddles crack as they walk. They find some fresh poop on the trail, and Grandfather says there is a young moose somewhere nearby. They find some branches the moose has chewed on and a chipmunk runs across the trail, but they don’t see a moose. They throw sticks in the creek and pick berries, but still no moose. They find pussy willows and see geese, but still no moose. Will they ever find it?
Sue Farrell Holler has written a sweet, quiet story of a grandfather introducing his grandson to the wonders of nature and teaching him the names of flora and fauna in both English and Ojibwemowin. Charming illustrations by Jennifer Faria are painted in gentle, soft colors, and they are filled with plenty of details to keep little eyes on the pages as the story is read to them. This is a lovely story that will become a favorite at reading time.
