A sweet story about embracing change, the excitement of discovery and the wonder of nature and new friends. A young boy moves from the city to a new home in the country. He misses his friends, but at least it's summertime -- flowers are blooming, baby birds are hatching, and caterpillars are transforming into butterflies. Enraptured by the natural world, Percy climbs trees, tastes wild strawberries and tries to catch fish in the river with his bare hands. Percy also likes to draw pictures of what he has seen that day. He collects interesting leaves and rocks, and insects in jars. Percy discovers that being alone doesn't have to be lonely, but explorers often share their findings. So, he creates a way to share his collection with others.
Percy's Museum is a sweet story about embracing change, the excitement of discovery and the wonder of nature and new friends.
The art and text—and the lack of adult interventions—offer relief and empowerment to children facing a new environment and a calming, quiet read to those who are not. Encouraging and kind.
