At the Pond

At the pond is a picture book by Werner Zimmermann.

Werner Zimmermann

Spend a lazy summer day exploring a tiny, perfect slice of nature! Count goldfish as they swim about the tranquil pond. Watch as sunlight moves across the water. Spot a water lily blossoming, frogs and water striders hopping through, a heron flying by. With a simple text and rich, lifelike paintings, Werner Zimmermann has created a peaceful meditation on nature and a unique and beautiful world for readers of all ages to enjoy.

Continue the learning journey at the end of the book, where you'll find more information on all the animals that call the pond home. (From Scholastic Canada)
