Secret Place

secret place

By Eve Bunting

A beautiful reminder that nature can be found in even the heart of the city if we are persistent enough in searching it out. Amidst the trucks and warehouses, graffiti, and telephone lines, a boy discovers a concrete river and its few inhabitants. This short storybook shows how enriching nature is in the life of a child, his family and his neighbours, and also serves to remind those gifted to have a spot of nature in their own backyards, how blessed they are! Simply and poetically written, the book introduces children to a few varieties of birds and some night-time creatures.
