"Outdoors is part of people all the time, even when they’re indoors.

“Once we were part of Outside and Outside was part of us,” opens the text. The premise that nowadays humans sometimes forget about Outside is belied so thoroughly and passionately by the illustrations that it barely registers—which works just fine in this love letter to nature. From opening spread to closing, nature is all-encompassing. Derby uses watercolors, powdered graphite, and thread or flower stems soaked in ink to paint full-bleed scenes bursting with dampness and leaves, branches and sticks, and qualities of light so various that they evoke different seasons and different weathers all at once. Outdoors, watery paint describes hanging branches or rain; leaves look liquid; large orange patches are treetops but evoke flower petals. Indoors, sunlight beams through glass panes to set a watery, purple-black hallway quietly aglow. Bits of dense color saturation and keen, crisp, sometimes prickly edges pierce, delineate, and offset the bountiful, wet, organic swaths. Outside “sings to us with chirps and rustles and tap-taps on the roof”; it “beckons with smells: sunbaked, fresh, and mysterious”; we feel it “in the warm weight of our cats and the rough fur of our dogs.” The child character embraced by Outside (when both outdoors and in) has peach skin and long, straight, dark hair.

Lushness without sweetness—wild, darkly romantic, and exquisite." A Kirkus Starred Review,

Outside In is such a beautifully written and illustrated children’s novel. This novel explores the many ways nature affects our everyday lives, even when we’re stuck inside. I loved the connection it made between humans and nature, as well as the detailed illustrations. It describes all the ways we have found to separate ourselves from nature or Outside and all the ways in which Outside calls to us, to renew our connection. This book has a powerful message and is very relevant today, especially with the Covid-19 pandemic, quarantine periods, and repeated lock downs. Outside In shows that even when we don't think to reach for nature, nature reaches for us. I recommend this picture book to anyone that appreciates nature and all it provides us with. I love how the Horn Book Magazine described the novel, “The intersection of outside and inside is creatively explored in this reflection on nature and its gentle persistence and ever-presence....Visible brushstrokes and splashes create texture, reflecting the outside’s raw, sensory, and uninhibited beauty—a beauty that (on the last spread) summons the girl out of her house and into the golden outdoors, reminding readers of the majesty that is always there, waiting just outside.” This novel is truly beautiful!!!

This book is geared towards younger elementary students.

This book talks about how people used to live outside. Nowadays, much of our lives is spent inside. This book just talks about how much we rely on nature to live our lives and we should be more appreciative of the outdoors.

This would be a good to use around Earth Day or to teach about being outside. ( )

As the simple but poetic narrative speaks of the beauty and lure of the outside, which waits for us, tempting us to return to it, the lovely artwork in Outside In captures all of the tricks outside plays, in order to capture our attention. The light and shadows coming in our windows, the scents and sights, everything trying to get us to return, and eventually, we do...

On my first read of Outside In, I found myself concentrating on the artwork of illustrator Cindy Derby, which is perhaps not surprising, considering that this title was one of four Caldecott Honor books chosen this year (2021), along with Zetta Elliott and Noa Denmon's A Place Inside of Me: A Poem to Heal the Heart, Cozbi A. Cabrera's Me & Mama, and Irene Latham, Karim Shamsi-Basha and Yuko Shimizu's The Cat Man of Aleppo. These illustrations, created using watercolor and powdered graphite, with some lines being made using flower stems and thread soaked in ink, are beautiful, with a lovely color palette, and an expressive, sometimes chaotic composition, one which suggests a world always in motion. I enjoyed these images, and I appreciated the ideas in Deborah Underwood's text, but it was only on my second read that I really appreciated the deeper meaning here. The narrative begins: "Once we were part of Outside, and Outside was part of us. There was nothing between us." It goes on to describe all the ways we have found to separate ourselves from Outside, from nature, and all the ways in which Outside calls to us, to renew our connection. This is not just a call to spend more time outdoors, it is a call to return to an earlier state of being, as humans, a state of being in which we too were part of nature, rather than standing outside of it, and visiting it upon occasion. How superbly ironic that Outside In was published in April of 2020, as the whole world was hunkering down inside. Although this serendipitous timing could not have been planned, it does make the book all the more powerful, the more one ponders it! Recommended to picture-book readers looking for subtler, more philosophical tales, ones which celebrate our connection to the natural world around us. ( )

This almost meditative book invites readers to step back and examine the natural world.

In terms of a plot, this book is very slim. It's basically just a reminder to step outside every once in a while, given that so much of our day-to-day involves being indoors.

Where the book really shines is the illustrations. They are almost impressionistic, with a soft edge to them. The pictures of nature are striking and/or adorable, whether its a monarch butterfly emerging from its chrysalis or a deer standing on the border of a wooded area. ( )
