The whole universe flows in eternal natural cycles, and this poetic journey captures the beauty of how nothing disappears and everything is infinite! With all things that exist in the universe, when they come to an end, they start over. Nothing disappears completely; everything is transformed over and over again. When winter ends, spring sprouts. After the night, a new day dawns, and from the fruit that has fallen on the ground, a tree grows . . . These are the magical cycles of the universe, and this book shows some of them from the cycle of water and the life cycle of butterflies and humans to the phases of the moon and the seasons of the year. Each cycle is represented by a simple definition and an illustration that identifies the main phases, and is followed by an observation to link the concept and a quote for the reader to reflect upon before moving on. So whether you are following the migration of birds or discovering the powerful sequence of the food chain, you can trace the progression of science and nature in a way to better understand our existence. Welcome to an incredible journey through infinity! ; A circular die cut on the cover symbolizes the continuous process of transformation and encourages young readers to open up and discover these magical cycles; The mix of science, poetry, and art is structured in a way that children will be drawn into these 11 natural cycles that are part of everyday life and the concept of cyclical time, where nothing disappears and everything is transformed

Georgia O'Keeffe's time in New Mexico and the paintings she created that were inspired by the region solidified her legacy as one of the most famous American modernists. But did you ever wonder how an artist like O'Keeffe found her inspiration to begin experimenting with new and different colors schemes and compositions? This endearing narrative hints at how Georgia O'Keeffe may have found her fresh perspective in the Red Hills of New Mexico, by imagining the relationship between the famous painter and her dog. Follow along with the fluffy black dog named Bo as he eagerly explores the stark desert landscape with his owner. But when the artist tires of exploring and painting the rust-colored landscape, Bo decides he needs to help Georgia become inspired to paint again. Unknowingly under the watchful eye of a lizard, he sets off alone in search of the lush flowers that he knows his owner is missing . . . in the desert. Will Bo find what he's looking for, or something even more beautiful? Does the desert hold the spectacular southwestern treasures that would become the subjects of the famous artist's new compositions?

Simon LeHare is at home in his gray urban environment but is wanting to try something new. He decides to learn how to play the tuba. To his delight, this simple act produces a most surprising result. With each note a leaf appears until at last there is an entire tree! With the help of Tim and his other friends, they use music to create something more beautiful than they could have imagined! The gentle moral about a slower, simpler, device-free lifestyle focuses on the importance of nature in an urban environment and unfolds on an empty and gray first page. As the pages turn, little bits of green begin to appear as Simon and his friends play instruments and sing, until the pages start to blossom with vivid, lush greens teeming with life. But when Important Edward sees what the friends have done, he vows to remove it immediately. Can Simon and Tim stop this opinionated elephant from cutting down their green oasis, and show him that even a small action can have a positive impact on the world around you?
