Reviews

β˜… "[A] love letter to nature....Lushness without sweetness--wild, darkly romantic, and exquisite."--Kirkus, STARRED review

β˜… "This gorgeous celebration of nature is a stirring invitation to play." --School Library Journal, STARRED review

β˜… "A moving reminder that nature's beckoning need not go unrequited." --Publisher's Weekly, STARRED review

β˜… "[A] gentle, unpreachy text that conveys the way modern life can be cut off from or blind to nature....Ink and watercolor art is gorgeously luminous....Perfect for an outside storytime, this will also provoke discussion among kids about their own outside/inside differentiations." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, STARRED review

β˜… "[A] lyrical and sensory exploration of the artificial separation between indoors and outdoors....Outside In is a beguiling, thought-provoking book that thinks outside the box." --BookPage, STARRED review

"Lovely, expressionistic art and poetic prose invite readers to contemplate nature's mystique and its role in everyday life.... Through an evocative mix of aqueous washes and richer, more saturated tones, the color-washed, loose-brushed illustrations capture a sense of nature's intrigue, delights, and influence." --Booklist
