a fascinating and educational resource... the standout for me is
the stunning artwork by Freya Hartas, her illustrations have a
delicate, whimsical textbook feel * Kids Book Review *
a visual treat, absolutely stunning! Slow Down is a fantastic tool for introducing, or reintroducing depending on the children's/adult's age, to the wonderful natural world around us. * Sarah Fairbairn *
This book is the most beautiful glimpse into the awesome things that happen in nature and within the animal kingdom... Highly recommended. * ReadPlus *
The book is a great way to spark a child's interest in the world around them and a great starting point for inspiring many nature adventures. * Finding Myself Young *
