If you ever want to clear your head or gain some perspective, a walk in the woods can do wonders. This heartfelt story starts with a conversation between grandfather and grandson as they take a walk in the forest together:
Finn is in a horrible mood and doesn’t want to talk about it, but he agrees to go for a walk in the woods with his grandfather, if he can stay under his quilt. On their walk, Grandpa talks about all the things we can’t see that lie “beneath”—the ground, the water, even inside people. This book is beautiful! What starts out a conversation about nature and what lies beneath things like the forest floor, turns into an introspective look at the feelings two people might have in common. It’s full of nature, mystery, heartbreak, love, mutual understanding, and expressive, adorable illustrations. This sweet, heartfelt picture book has definitely earned a spot on my bookshelf!
