About this book

Lake: A See to Learn Book

See to Learn: Book 2

Kate Moss Gamblin • Karen Patkau

Lake: A See to Learn Book is the second title in a series of non-fiction picture books for very young children that uses lyrical language to encourage a sensitive perception of the natural world and a caring connection with it.

The text asks young readers to consider what they see and experience at a lake through the seasons — from dragonflies and hummingbirds in summer, to crimson leaves in fall, to goslings on the lake’s icy surface in winter, to moose calves by the water’s edge in spring — drawing local connections alongside those of a global sensibility.

Gorgeous illustrations show a child and grownup appreciating the lake’s beauty, learning its secrets and enjoying moments of wonder, all first steps toward developing a lifelong awareness of our interconnectedness to the Earth and our impact on the environment.

Includes suggestions for further reading and an author’s note regarding aspects of shaping our inner environmental compass.
