About The Book
Newly hatched, but not ready to fly. Eager to explore, but not ready to leave mama’s side. No longer a tadpole, but not ready to leap from water onto land. Animals, just like people, can find themselves in awkward in-between stages. How do we get out of the in-betweens? With patience and time—and sometimes a little push! Join celebrated author-photographer April Pulley Sayre for a behind-the-scenes glimpse into nature’s in-between moments.

Raves and Reviews
"The close-up images are crisp and clear, the word choice is precise, and the poem flows smoothly—April Pulley Sayre has a well-deserved reputation for combining visuals and text to encourage a child’s awe at the natural world, and this exemplary work is a shining example.... Wondrous and wonderful, for reading and thinking and sharing."
– Kirkus Reviews, 1/1/2023
With a poetic text and sharp, uncluttered photographs, the Sayres examine transitions in the natural world— transitions from physical spaces as well as those between states of being.... Ideal for a group read-aloud, this book encourages discussion of personal “in betweens.”
– Horn Book Magazine, 3/1/2023
"Using succinct, poetic text and her signature close-up nature photography, Sayre explores awkward transitional moments experienced by all animals...this perceptive and reassuring offering will be welcomed by inbetweeners and the late Sayre's many fans."
