A little girl and her grandfather walk along the quieter paths which take them past a chopping hoe, the shirr of grasshoppers, and the shushing of a water sprinkler.
When Grandfather fetches a small girl from school, they take the quiet way home. They hear not the loud clanging and rumbling noises, but the "dart-and-flee" of the honeybee; not the hurry-up honks of the busy road, but "the rustle scuffle scrape-a-caper / Tumbling paper" in the alley; not the roar of the lawn mower, but the chip chop of the garden hoe. Huang's bright double-page spreads in acrylic paint and colored pencil show that there's excitement and connection in uncrowded places where you can get close up to one special thing. --ALA Booklist
