Beautifully illustrated by one of my favorite illustrators, Beginning traces a father and child pair as they explore how the ending of one experience is the beginning of another. This is perfect for readers who may be embarking on new adventures.

— Chelsea

In this magical and poetic picture book, a father and child see all the wonders and connections in nature and in life as they go about their day.

From a seed to a plant, from an egg to a chick, from a caterpillar to a butterfly, a child and father observe the cycles of nature and come to see that as each journey ends, new adventures begin.
