Bestselling author Laura Brand and illustrator Freya Hartas's Slow Down and Be Here Now invites you to enjoy the present moment with everyday nature that makes you stop, watch, and be amazed by the tiniest things.

Twenty stories with beautiful full-colour illustrations inspire children to slow down and take a look at the world around them. Zoom in to observe a hummingbird drinking nectar or a pea shoot appear. Delight in a little snail as he comes out to drink. Charming text paired with real science invites you to observe nature up close. Let it stop you in your tracks, so that you can truly find joy in the present moment. Each story features a tiny nature moment to treasure, with facts and figures on animals, plants, weather, and more, making this the perfect book for young nature lovers.

The Slow Down series encourages kids (and their grown-ups!) to take the time to stop and experience mindful moments in nature.
