About this title
Walk in the field, watch the sky, climb through the woods and find- cloud angels, hay angels, faces hiding in the wood.
Have you ever looked for familiar shapes in the clouds as they roll by? Sometimes you can see a dragon, or a flower, or an angel with flowing hair. But you don't need to look up in the sky to find angels.
There are angels right here on earth that we can see and feel and touch. There is one in the curve of a butterfly wing; another in the haloed head of a sunflower. Perhaps you have made an angel in the snow, or at the seashore with seaweed hair and shell wings. Nature's angels are everywhere you look. Maybe you'll find only a face in a ripple of water, or a swirling dress in a flying milkweed puff, But if you look, you'll see angels everywhere.
Come turn the pages and find the angels, But look carefully- they like to play hide and seek.Review:
"Sky, earth, / cloud, and rain, / show your face / to me again. / Halo nods, / wing unbends, / I see angels / without end." Ann Turner finds angels in the strangest places--in sunflowers, in milkweed fluff, in ponds, in clouds, and in the curve of a butterfly wing. In this boldly colorful, richly textured picture book, she--along with artist Lois Ehlert, creator of the Caldecott Honor winner Color Zoo--plays hide and seek with the winged celestials. In her poem "Sea Angel," an angel is built out of shells and seaweed: "We went treasure hunting / by the shore / and made a picture / on the sand / a horseshoe crab / for the head, / a scatter of shells for wings, / and a hank of green weed / for the sea angel's hair." Ehlert's painted paper collages are a pleasure to behold, even if you can't find the angel in the picture--which is likely. Artist's notes in the back offer background material on sunflowers, monarch butterflies, milkweed, and other wonders of the natural world. (Ages 5 and older) --Karin Snelson
