With eyes wide open to the mysteries of nature, a child on a hike discovers that "a leaf is a boat for a beetle" and that "a nest is a cradle for eggs." Tired from her long walk, she sleeps—and in her dream she flies like a bird and marvels at the beauty around her. This planet, that is home to so many creatures, is magical when seen through the eyes of wonder.
