Patrice Barton's artistic talents were first discovered at age three, when she was found creating a mural on the dining room wall with a pastry brush and a can of Crisco. Her interest and passion in art grew as she did, and she earned a BFA in Studio Art from the University of Texas. She has been working as an illustrator ever since.

I used this book with my preschoolers ages 4 and 5. As I read the book to them, we also put on our lookers. The children became more and more interested in the story. After the story we began our own adventure outside and the things the children found were wonderful. The excitement continuted when I brought in some Green Worms from our local bait some. The children touched them, looked thru magifiying glasses to examine them. This is a great book with lots of wonderful excitment happening. Highly recommend this book.
As the children quickly run outside to see what magic these lookers have in store for them, they soon become immersed in the wonders of our world, no longer needing their 'looker.'
I have to say this is a great book from an author who knows the minds of our little ones. The first miracle was coming up with an idea to get the children to even step foot outside and than to have them begin enjoying it was icing on the cake. This is one of my granddaughters favorite books. The illustrations are simple yet portray exactly what is happening, perfect for the storyline.
Don't miss getting this book for all the children you know and love. Very good job. Highly recommended.
I give it five stars not only because it's a lot of fun to read, but because it's so timely. In this age of being bombarded with information as we run from activity to activity, it's rare we take the time to see the extraordinary in the ordinary.
