Step Out Gently
This beautiful poem encourages young readers and listeners to open their senses to all of the living things that can be found just outside their door. The lyrical prose is accompanied by breathtakingly magnified photographs of various creatures in the insect world. Frost includes interesting facts about each photographed insect, from a Chinese Praying Mantis to an Ebony Jewelwing Damselfly.
