In The Tall, Tall Grass follows a fuzzy caterpillar and its point of view on an adventure through the grass to discover all of the creatures that call the backyard home. Starting with the sun up and hummingbirds sipping on sweet flowers, this tiny tour guide leads the readers all the way to nighttime when fireflies are glowing. Bright collage-style artwork will captivate even the youngest readers in addition to the simple text that also showcases the sounds that some of the creatures make.
