'This grass is amazing!' he suddenly said.
'There are all kinds of things here -- brown, yellow, and red!

In The Looking Book, author P. K. Hallinan uses lively rhyming verse to entice children to delight in the wonders of the world around them. Given a pair of 'lookers' by their mom, two boys soon realize that the lookers aren't needed at all. They just need to take the time to step outside, and they will see how much fun they can have.
