In the Fiddle is a Song A Book of Hidden Potential by Durga Bernhard


In the Fiddle is a Song A Book of Hidden Potential by Durga Bernhard

An acorn is not just an acorn. Somewhere deep inside is a tree waiting to grow tall. And that golden wheat swaying in the breeze? It's bread, just waiting to be baked. There's hidden potential all around us. There's even hidden potential inside you! This special lift-the-flap book will open your eyes to the remarkable possibilities within the ordinary things we see every day.


With rhythmic phrasing and rhymes at some sentence endings, the verse is evident when read straight through. Many children, however, will find it more satisfying to pause and talk about the ideas that arise as the pages unfold. - Booklist
