About the Book
A bounty of natural beauty can be hidden in an unlikely place, as is revealed to both children and adults in this photo essay embellished with simple, lyrical text. Watch the seasons unfold and come full circle as the author, with camera in hand, repeatedly visits one small spot beside an old farm pond over the course of one year. Bright, bold close-ups capture the abundance of life she discovers within this small world. And having uncovered a secret hiding there, the author waits with great anticipation for its return the next spring. Little Pond is the story of a vernal pool.
