I received an arc of this title from NetGalley for an honest review. I parent stating that they see their child in different parts of nature.

What an extraordinarily beautiful book! It uses calm and gentle scenes from nature to teach kids how unique and special they are. This would make a great gift for anyone you love, no matter their age.

This is a good book about seeing the best in a child and in their future while relating it to nature.

This is a beautiful book with bright and colorful illustrations. The gentle rhyme makes it a pleasure to read. It's an ode to how we see so many wondrous things in the people we love.

In You I See was so beautiful in words and illustrations. I would definitely buy this one for my daughter so she can learn to see the best in everything.

"In you I see" is a vibrantly illustrated picture book. The rhyming pattern and pastel artwork, evoking the natural world, is sure to become a favorite read aloud. Recommend.

Beautiful story. The artwork is vibrant. Also, not sure if this intentional but i think the idea that any child can be the main character or imagine they are because the figure has no final form is amazing! I would definitely recommend this book to others.

In You I See is a beautiful book! This is a great book to share with a child in your life. It talks about looking beneath the surface to see what is inside a person. It is well written and the artwork is fantastic. I love that the characters are drawn in such a way that a child can see any person in them. 
An excellent book by Rachel Emily- I highly recommend it!

Oh my gosh this book! This is such a beautiful story showing children all the beautiful things that they are and can be from our point of view. I liked all of the big comparisons to animals and the sun and moon, ocean, etc. My toddler loved the pictures that help to tell the story. The rhyming was perfect and it's a sweet ode to children to tell them how wonderful they are to us. I teared up a little reading this because the big love we have for our kids really shows in this story and they will feel that while we read it to them. I can't wait to get my copy!

Thanks to NetGalley and DK for access to this ARC!

To have the ability to look around the world we know; the one familiar to us in our adult shoes, walking through life in our adult states of consciousness, & pick out every beautiful thing we see as a gift for those who view the world differently than we, I think is a fantastic ability & one we should seek to cultivate in all forms. 

In this book we read through several stanzas wherein the author expresses seeing the person they love in places, things & thoughts that surround them, near & far. This would be the ideal bedtime story; something to allow & encourage a child's mind to wander to the vast expanses of their imagination with the reminder that in all great things there can be familiar love & light. 

The illustrations in this book are beautiful & truly encapsulating. I think what I appreciated about them most of all was that they depict imagery as we might see in the mind's eye; not necessarily strict & crisp but, warm & with broad strokes, as though we are drawing forth an image from our recollection. I suppose we might even view these illustrations as done to demonstrate how grand & immense the world must seem to children. Everything is giant & vast but, the narrator seems to find their way through all the wide world so that in everything big, tall & even sometimes small, the reader might remember that this is our world together & not apart. 

I truly loved reading through this book. I am a sucker for delicate poems. Placed alongside illustrations that encourage discourse & exploration, I found this book to be an absolute delight & I am certain that it can easily find its way into being a staple in the homes & schools of many. 

Thank you to NetGalley, DK Publishing & Rachel Emily for the free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Such a sweet read. I read this with my 8yo tonight at bedtime. We loved it. It was very descriptive and the illustrations are soft and beautiful.

Beautifully illustrated and written. Teaches kids figurative language and to recognize their connectedness to nature. Moving and rhythmic prose that I think will really resonate with children and parents. Would definitely recommend!

In You I See is a beautiful and touching children's book. The illustrations and poetic descriptions capture a deep love and appreciation of who we are on the inside. 

I believe every child, as well as their family members, would enjoy this breathtaking story. I would love to add it to my classroom to celebrate the uniqueness and diversity of each one of my students.

I don't have much to say about this one.

It is a picture book and it's a sequence of places (nature-settings) "in which I see you": in the mountains, in the air, in the waves... Okay, but so what? 
The art wasn't anything special and the content was pretty "outdated" and not dealt with in an interesting or original way. 

So..can't really say anything else about it.
Didn't like it.

An imaginative story of how nature plays a part in all of us; how we and the world are much deeper if you only look past the surface. Beautiful.

Loved this! An empowering and sweet book to read with the little ones in your life. The illustrations are beautiful and the story itself very imaginative that can help young readers see all the potential and possibilities they carry.

I would definitely recommend this to any family member or guardian as it can add a lot to your relationship with your special young reader!

The message in this book is beautiful along with the illustrations. I think all kids and even adults can benefit from the message in this book and knowing there is more to everyone including themselves than just what you can see. It may be a bit hard of a concept for some kids to understand, especially those that are more literal. But it can lead to a meaningful conversation to help them understand it completely.

What a lovely meaningful story for both kids and adults. I love the images, so colorful and detailed, evokes such emotions and the written words are powerful.  This is a book that adults can enjoy reading to kids and opening up for deeper conversations.  I plan to gift for kids as birthday gifts so they can enjoy.

I received an electronic ARC from DK Children through NetGalley.
The cover is gorgeous and the illustrations are lovely throughout. The poetic text works on most pages but is a bit stilted on a few. The concept is delightful and we need as many empowering books as possible. This could be a baby gift or a graduation gift as the sentiment expressed is important for all ages.
