Katie is excited about the little pieces of nature she collects along the hiking trail--a flower, an acorn, a stone. Later, when Katie shows her father her collection, he's not quite as excited. He explains that some treasures are best left untouched. Taking items from their natural surroundings can be harmful to plants and animals. Katie learns the importance of enjoying nature responsibly. Illustrations and nonfiction fact boxes support the text.
