Cynthia Rylant draws parallels between the human experience and nature in this meditation on life, its beauty and the wonder of it all.  Her soft, gentle text conveys an appreciation for the uniqueness and experiences of life, the important lessons we learn along the way, and the wisdom and values we hope to instill in our children that will carry them through their lifetime.  Breathtaking and emotionally rich illustrations by Brendan Wenzel are a perfect fit for the book's beautiful and meaningful message.

LIFE will be out on June 27 from Beach Lane Books.
