Praise for In the Tall, Tall Grass

"A terrific story-hour book. As day turns to night, a caterpillar crunches and munches his way through the tall, tall grass...Besides a treat for eyes and ears, this can be used as an introductory nature lesson."--Booklist, starred review

"Bold, bright, stylized illustrations capture eye and imagination as they convey the simple, rhyming text of this outstanding nature tale."--School Library Journal, starred review
