december 29
and i woke to a morning
that was quiet and white
the first snow
(just like magic) came on tip toes

Flowers blooming in sheets of snow make way for happy frogs dancing in the rain. Summer swims move over for autumn sweaters until the snow comes back again. In Julie Fogliano's skilled hand and illustrated by Julie Morstad's charming pictures, the seasons come to life in this gorgeous and comprehensive book of poetry.

Thought provoking, insightful, almost every poem just clamored to be read again. And again. I wanted to hug it when I was finished. And then read it again. It is a marvelous feat to truly capture a child's experience of the natural world, and these two have done it.

I don't actually have much to say about this lovelylovelylovely poetry collection other than that the poems are beautiful, the artwork is beautiful, and I want to buy my own copy of this and read it every day forever. The end.

A charming collection of short and sweet poems from spring and around the seasons.

Julie Fogliano and Julie Morstad are like my children's book dream team so I was super excited to see this on the shelf. Fogliano's words and Morstad's illustrations blend together to create a most lovely and sweet experience for readers of any age. Please, please, please continue collaborating. Please.
