Nature, as we all know, is a healer and a giver. This book written by Aimee Nezhukumatathil (@aimee_nezhukumatathil) focuses on the joy nature gives to us all, acting as an open love letter to the natural world mixed with elements of a memoir inside of it as well. It contains beautiful hints of mindfulness and attention to detail, with exquisite illustrations perfectly matching with the poems and essays written by Nezhukumatathil. She offers a completely unique perspective as the child of a Filipina mother and Indian father; the landscapes of her childhood in America from Kansas to Arizona are abundant with her experiences as a minority, but also as a passionate nature-lover. Read this book to feel a little bit inspired and lot more grateful for what Earth has given to all of us.
