    1. This radiant picture book speaks to each of us having individual experiences in the world. Only you can feel things the way that you do. Only you taste, hear, smell and see things in the way that you do. No one else breathes with your breath. No one else wishes on the same star in the same way. And no one else feels the emotions you do or says I love you the way that you mean it. Wood’s writing reads like a poem, a verse that dances, expresses and moves. He turns his lens onto different specif [...]




    2. No one by you it a sweet book with a wonderful message that you must experience things for yourself. It takes us through many things in nature that can be experienced when you go out and do it yourself. Each page displays a child that is doing what the story is telling us about. I think the only thing that I would have liked to see in this book would be sensory items on some of the pages. Something that we could feel, smell, or here in order to give us a glimpse of what the kids are able to expe [...]


    3. Wow. This is a summertime bedtime book that begs to be turned into a cherished ritual. And seriously, that is not something that I can recall having said about too many books.Big soft realistic paintings of children pair with descriptive mellifluous text to create a lullaby-like book full of sensory images. Lie on your back and imagine a soft voice saying,"No one but you can feel the rain kiss your skinor the wind ruffle your hair.And no one but you can walk through a rain puddle in your bare fe [...]


    4. This picture book describes the many things that one can experience in nature. Everyone can experience nature, like the kiss of rain on your skin. The memories are your own which you share with the earth. Each page of this picture book has a description of something wonderful you can share with nature, and a picture of a child preforming the act. The picture of the child is enlarged so that whoever is reading the book will feel a connection to the child. This book is an easy read to help childre [...]


    5. The text in this inspiring picture book reminds each of us that it's up to us to make a difference. There's a beautiful world out there waiting for us to notice. There are seeds that need to be planted, plants that need to be nurtured, and stories to be told. The illustrations focus on individuals giving their all to make something good happen instead of waiting for something good to happen to them. This would be a great addition to a text set about children who can change the world in small and [...]


    6. 2011 - Realistic FictionThis is a great story that speaks to kids about being a part of the life that is around them. So often, we are seeing kids spend more and more time in front of a tv or a video game. This books speaks to the wonders that is our world and what can be gained by being a part of it.


    7. This book was beautiful. It shows kids that you are your own person and how no one else can experience the world quite like you. The illustrations were amazing as well. It showed the points of view of many different children and told many different things that children can and do experience. But, make sure to remember that no one can experience the world like you can.


    8. An incredibly sweet story which manages to talk about a person being unique and special without veering into the (all too familiar) creepy and sappy. The book is as much a celebration of nature and sensation as it is the individual, and the painted illustrations are wonderfully evocative in supporting that.


    9. Simply beautiful, this book describes the singular world that each of us lives through our unique experiences. Rich with sensory images of Nature, each two-page spread highlights one child tasting, touching, seeing, and feeling the world around him/her.


    10. This book goes beyond the message "you can be whatever you want to be." It shows that you are unique and that there is no one like you- there never has been, there is not presently, and there never will be. With lifelike illustrations and captivating prose, this book is a must read.


    11. The best part of this book are the illustrations. They are beautifully done and do a great job of fallowing along with the words on the page. It teaches a great lesson to kids that they have to experience things for themselves using their five senses. The story line is just over all amazing.


    12. Our experiences set us apart and determine who we are. And our experiences guide us in every step of our life. The book reminds us to be open and embrace the experiences that come our way and integrate them in our life.


    13. Grades PK-3? This book is beautifully illustrated with realistic oil paintings. A loving message about the awe and specialness of being yourself-- and the miracle of discovering things by yourself and knowing yourself.



    14. This is another book intended for sentimental adults and masquerading as a children's book. High marks for sweet, low marks for plot.



    15. A great bok for encouraging us to experience things ourselves using all our senses. Nice scaffold for writing poetry. Very cool book.







    16. Simply beautiful, from the illustrations that are exquiste to the wonderful words. No one can feel like you. See like you. Experience things like you.
