A terrific story-hour book. As day turns to night, a caterpillar crunches and munches his way through the tall, tall grass. Along the way, he watches hummingbirds dart and dip; ants lug, pull and tug; and snakes slip, slide, and glide. Using a staccato text, Fleming nevertheless manages to evoke both the creatures who live in the grass and the way they spend their time. The two-page spreads that reveal all these goings-on are impressionistic in execution and boldly colored in grassy greens, sunny yellows, and evening blues, making the art easily accessible—and appealing. Besides a treat for eyes and ears, this can be used as an introductory nature lesson. –Booklist, STARRED REVIEW
