An observant boy sees many things on his way home from school. A dog, a truck, a bird, a butterfly . . . these ordinary urban experiences become artistic inspiration for the boy. When he gets home, he draws all of the things he saw. Now he can see them at home, too!
Caldecott Honor winner Ted Lewin's magnificent, lifelike paintings transform the boy's everyday walk into an enchanting exploration of his surroundings. Emerging readers will breeze through the simple, repetitive text, and challenge themselves to see what the boy sees.
