Product description

Review

"A white-bearded grandfather imparts his gentle wisdom to his grandchildren—a girl and a boy—as they meander through a placid green space. Together, the grandfather and children make note of the bustling natural world.... The grandfather suggests that the children try another way of being with him, sitting quietly on a bench.... It seems as though the prolific author and illustrator dePaola is speaking directly to readers on these pages, passing on his own insight. His signature illustration style is so simple that it feels fresh.... A lovely, simple reminder to pause and notice this life." (Kirkus Reviews, *STARRED REVIEW*)

"A grandfather walks with two children, pointing out the busyness in nature around them.... Simple, straightforward, and effective, this book gently encourages children to find comfort in their own quiet moments."
