    Soft little story about the secret places hiding right in front of us if we'd only take the time to look.

    Deep in the polluted, bustling city there is a little runoff stream where wild creatures have managed to thrive. A young boy, his father, and a few other birdwatchers gather to observe the wild creatures passing through. This book shows that nature is all around us if we just take the time to look. While not all readers will think it's great that the small group choose to keep the spot secret, I think this is very wise. It seems that for everyone who wants to see animals and habitat protected there is another who wishes to cause harm to the animals and change the habitat.

    I wanted to like this more than I did. The ending was weird. I felt like it could have been an amazing book on wildlife in/reclaiming urban spots... but instead it went on about keeping it a secret. Which I get, kids love secrets, but I just couldn't get into it. I like that the book reinforces there is wildlife in the nasty city, you just have to look for it.

    This story is a reminder that even in the most urban settings--if we pay attention--we can find little nooks of wilderness, like this Secret Place. The watercolor illustrations are terrific, they represent the story perfectly. It's like a love note to nature.

    This book is a great mix of nature and community. In the midst of a large city, there is a secret place where birds and animals can be seen. Beautiful illustrations, even a page that pictures different birds found there, with their names. Great independent or read aloud story.

    Nature thrives in the city in this book. The illustrations are very nice.
