Summary
"Hey, you! Sky's blue!" a girl shouts as she runs by the window of a boy bent over his digital device. Intrigued, the boy runs out after her, leaving his shoes (and phone) behind, and into a world of sunshine, dewey grass, and warm sand. Filled with the pleasures of being alive in the natural world, Run Wild is an exquisite and kid-friendly reminder of how wonderful life can be beyond doors and screens.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Summertime! Freedom! Running through the woods and along the beach with nothing to do but enjoy the day. Author-illustrator Covell imparts an ideal image of a magical, carefree childhood day where just being alive is exciting. Two children, a girl and a boy, only cease running when they stop to cool off in the tranquil azure sea. Otherwise, the energy abounds as the two experience the natural world, including a thunderous storm. Crayon-and-watercolor pictures are filled with color and movement as the pair encounter critters including butterflies, beetles, a slug, and a ground squirrel, while constantly being followed by an inquisitive bird. Short sentences, some with question marks and others with exclamation marks, flow easily and keep pace with the children's feet: Chase the wind . . . Can you grab it? Go ahead . . . Race a rabbit! They run, literally, to the end of day, when the moon appears and it's time for the adventure to wind down. A perfect invitation to go out and explore nature.--Owen, Maryann Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Some nature books focus on careful, quiet observation. Covell (the Rat and Roach books) knows that nature makes kids want to move. Bold, exuberant watercolor spreads burst with energy, and a handwritten font makes the text look as if it's dashed off in chalk. A boy sits indoors when a girl with dark, curly hair sprints by his window. "Hey, you, Sky's blue!/ (forget your shoes)/ Open that door and.../ Sprout, you're out!" Now he's outside, his bare feet pumping through dandelions, catching up. The boy runs hard; they scare up a rabbit, painted in a few strong strokes. Girl and boy emerge from the forest to the seashore; then, a thunderstorm breaks. Things can go wrong in the rain (and in life, Covell suggests): "There'll be/ slippery slumps./ Bruises./ Bumps.../ and Rotten/ Stumps!" But with the girl's encouragement ("Come on, then./ Let's GO!"), the boy's up and running again. Through powerful art and punchy text, Covell celebrates freedom, the out-of-doors, the joy of movement, and the importance of paying attention to the present moment. Ages 3-up.
