Meditative and enchanting, this beautifully illustrated picture book encourages us to explore, connect, and find wonder in nature.

"A lovely invitation to children to see themselves as part of the larger world around them." Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

There's a bird outside your window
with a song that's full of sky,
and it wonders why you stay inside
when you are free to fly?

You Are Part of the Wonder is a tranquil celebration of nature, mindfulness, and joy.

Ruth Doyle gently delivers powerful messages promoting love, empathy, and understanding, while celebrating the beauty of the world we live in. Many of her stories feature animals, an obsession that started early. With her daughter, she runs Mini Motley Sanctuary, home to a flock of sheep, eight chickens, three dogs, two rescued miniature horses, six guinea pigs, and two rabbits. The animals inspire and invade Ruth's stories, as well as make regular appearances at schools for animal-writing workshops. Ruth lives in Suffolk, England.
