By Beatrice Alemagna

Magnificent splashes of fluorescent orange make international legend  Beatrice Alemagna’s picture book—about a little boy who discovers  nature—visually powerful, timely, and thought provoking.

It’s an awful, boring, rainy day, and Mom doesn’t want her boy on  screens! Off he goes into the woods, where he accidentally drops his  precious video game into a pond! NO! His emotions are palpable: Beatrice  Alemagna imbues each moment in the book with intense color and feeling.  It’s wet everywhere, and worse—there’s nothing to “do.” And then a  chance meeting with four giant snails (their antennae felt like Jell-O)  alters the boy—and next he finds mushrooms that resemble him in his  pointy-hooded raincoat. Touching, tasting, and feeling nature is an  incredible experience! Back at home, the child, altered by his chance  meeting with nature, has a happy reunion with his mom, and the two share  warms mug of hot chocolate in a poignant moment. Here is a story that  will wake up the imagination in tiny explorers who find magic in  everyday life.
