A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this book.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this beautiful book of poetry will enrich any reader's life on so many levels. Its author won Caldecott Honors for her earlier book Song of the Water Boatman and Other Pond Poems as well as various awards for This Is Just to Say: Poems of Apology and Forgiveness.
Is It Any Good?
This book is exquisite, with poetry and artwork that individually are absolutely amazing. Taken together, the result is even more unbelievable. Colors and seasons have never seemed so interconnected and vibrant. But nothing here really hits you over the head. The message is subtle, creative, and full of song.
Joyce Sidman's poetry is the real deal, not the sing-song kind of rhyme that is sometimes dished out to kids. And Pamela Zagarensi's artwork is clever, alive, intricate, and innovative. This is a perfect pairing, and a unique and beautiful book to keep on your picture book bookshelf forever.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
