PreSchool-Grade 3-- This collection of 80 of Fisher's poems captures the fascination and excitement of growth, the seasons, and the ways of small living things as experienced by young children. Always Wondering is an apt title as many of the poems are speculative: How is growing done? How does the chick know how to get out of the egg? The verse is simple, the thoughts brief. Each poem holds the kernel of an idea about nature. The selections are perfect for posting in classrooms and libraries; for sharing aloud while watching mice, rabbits, and insects; and for reading to open up doors into the world. Many of the entries appeared in Fisher's Feathered Ones and Furry (Crowell, 1971; o.p.), I Wonder How, I Wonder Why (Abelard-Schuman, 1962; o.p.), and In the Woods, in the Meadow, in the Sky (Scribners, 1965; o.p.), but this book will introduce a new generation of children to her poetry. Sandin's lovely pencil sketches open each of the volume's four sections. Like Shirley Hughes's Out and About (Lothrop, 1988), this collection has a child's eye as its focus. A fine addition to the poetry shelves. --Barbara Chatton, College of Education, University of Wyoming, Laramie
