Children should connect more with nature. Understanding the diversity among living things will allow them to see life differently and they will be able to interact with their environment appropriately. They will also appreciate the role of people in the world. All Life Matters reminds us of the interconnectedness to be found in nature. It begins by talking about the smallest creatures, such as insects and spiders. Mary Lynne Zahler then describes beautiful things in nature, such as the moon and the stars. The panorama extends to natural phenomena such as rain and snow, following through with all kinds of animals until finally getting to people. The author shows us that all living beings are amazing and have a purpose.
Children must learn to respect their environment. Adults can show them that each living being has a role to play in this world and this story highlights the theme. Children and adults will be able to share an appreciation of nature through reading this book. I enjoyed All Life Matters because it spreads love. The narration is in the form of a poem, while the story itself is short and simple so that children can begin to practice their reading. The sketch-like images are original and the colors are light and inspire tranquility. The narrative and visual content are well-balanced and are presented in a way so that children will learn about God's creation and understand the beautiful gift of nature. I recommend this book as author Mary Lynne Zahler encourages the love of nature sublimely.
