With white backgrounds and stand-out colored-pencil illustrations, this picture book urges everyone to appreciate the everyday music found in nature. Bees bzzz-zzz and frogs croa-oak before a summer thunderstorm rolls in with drums, cymbals, and the steady maracas of rain. Children will enjoy imitating the sounds of the forest, but it is the illustrations that will most ensnare their imaginations, from the gentle curves of sea-toned grasses to the sharp white lines of lightning cutting through clouds.
