elightful story that encourages children to put down the TV

remotes and video-game controllers and take a look at the wonder of

the world around them.

In The Looking Book, author P. K. Hallinan uses lively rhyming

verse to entice children to delight in the wonders of the world around

them. Given a pair of "lookers" by their mom, two boys soon realize

that the lookers aren't needed at all. They just need to take the time to

step outside, and they will see how much fun they can have.
