A path is never the same twice. Everything we experience, be it real or imagined, influences what is around us—even if the changes are sometimes too small to recognize! For three curious kids, their regular walk down their neighborhood path is an experience far from ordinary.
With sketchbooks tucked under their arms and a magnifying glass in hand, each child interacts with the path in a different way, and together, they create a whole world for themselves. The Path encourages young readers to take a closer look at their surroundings and emphasizes the importance of empathy towards all living things. This book demonstrates that change is certain, but also that change should be welcomed.
