by Fiona Barker
An important story for kids who think everything that they need is inside. Highlighting a bunch of fun things to do outside such as puddle jumping, sandcastle building, jumping in leaves, picking berries, and sledding, Barlow reminds kids of how much there is to do, and that these things might not be there forever, whereas computer games and TV will wait for you. Eventually, Amelie realizes that the great outdoors holds many amazing things. With simple pictures in muted tones, Amelie and the Great Outdoors is a sweet story great for kids 0-5.
