In this lyrical picture book from an award-winning poet, a young boy cherishes a neighborhood fieldthroughout the changing seasons. With stunning illustrations and a charming text, this beautiful story celebrates a child’s relationship with nature.
There was a boy named Emile who fell in love with a field.
It was wide and blue– and if you could have seen it so would’ve you.
Emile loves the field close to his home–in spring, summer, and fall, when it gives him bees and flowers, blossoms and leaves. But not as much in winter, when he has to share his beautiful, changeable field with other children…and their sleds. This relatable and lyrical ode to one boy’s love for his neighborhood field celebrates how spending time in nature allows children to dream, to imagine…and even to share.
