The nice folks at Candlewick Press sent us a review copy of this one, and we are so grateful. It’s a delight. It’s a collection of tiny poems that capture everything I love about reading poetry with kids – especially the fresh use of language different from prose stories, and the imagination of the authors who often created their poems based on noticing something in the world and seeing it in an unusual way. I read this with my son one lazy weekend afternoon and we stopped so many times to discuss our reactions to the poems, and how we each understood them. He was also tickled as he found various little details in the artwork. Beautifully illustrated by Melissa Sweet who works in mixed media including painting, drawing, and collage.

Lulling and lovely, a fine selection of adult and children's poets bring the seasons to life, accompanied by Sweet's magnificently evocative art.
