Lovely book for children written by teacher and naturalist Clara Dillingham Pierson. This book in the "Among the People" series explores the animal inhabitants of a pond. The beautiful writing brings the pond creatures into being in the reader's imagination and allows them a glimpse of the mysterious lives being carried out above and below the water's surface.

I enjoyed this book but not quite as much as Clara's books about the farm animals. Perhaps it is because I'm more familiar with farm animals, but the changing of readers was a bit annoying.

From my 7yo: We liked it! It taught me a lot about pond animals! One of my favorite audiobooks. But some we had to skip because they were too sad or had bad words (like stupid).
