Song of the Water Boatman

Song of the Water Boatman

by Joyce Sidman Illustrated by Beckie Prange
From spring"s first thaw to autumn"s chill, the world of the pond is a dramatic place. Though seemingly quiet, ponds are teeming with life and full of surprises. Their denizens--from peepers to painted turtles, duckweed to diving beetles--lead secret and fascinating lives. A unique blend of whimsy, science, poetry, and hand-colored woodcuts, this collection invites us to take a closer look at our hidden ponds and wetlands. Here is a celebration of their beauty and their mystery.
