From predawn to sunrise, environments everywhere bustle with life. From the hop of a robin, to the scurry of a beetle, and the hum of a bee, nature is all around. A series of haiku take the reader on a close-up, observational look at the amazing abundance of nature, right outside our rural, suburban, and urban homes. Each stanza focuses on an aspect of the natural world or a creature going about their daily business as the world wakes up. Alongside, informative text goes into more depth on each subject. Instructions to help kids create their own haiku poems, a unique form of poetry from Japan, are included, as is a glossary and a resource list, adding value as a STEAM and Core Curriculum book for use both in the classroom and at home.
