            A lyrical narration and breathtaking illustrations transport us to the world of a pond with all its sights, sounds, and pulsing life. The red-winged blackbird spreads his tail and sings his hello morning song; he has sung it since the bright and misty world began. When the soft p...ink of the dawn sun starts peeking over the pond, a new day has begun for all the animals who live in it and around its watery edges. The friendly duck family, the mysterious water striders, and the busy beaver are a few of the many fascinating and familiar animals included in this glowing poetic tribute to the lively ecosystem of the pond. A companion to In the Sea, In the Wild, On the Farm, and In the Woods, At the Pond brings readers to the pond's sun-dappled shores, pairing David Elliott's witty and enchanting animal poems with Amy Schimler-Safford's luminous and evocative scenes of pond life. Back matter notes about the animals and plants will further captivate young nature lovers.
